Orlando Bloom suffered a serious spinal injury in 1998. The actor fell three stories. At that time he “only barely escaped death”.

Orlando Bloom, 44, remembers a formative event on Instagram. The star actor fell down three floors of a building in 1998 and “squeezed his spine” in the process, as he writes about an old photo of himself. It shows Bloom, wearing a large, black back brace, beaming on a bicycle “about three months” after his accident.

Orlando Bloom is grateful for his agility

Accordingly, he “only barely escaped death and paralysis,” he explains. Today he is “grateful every day for my limbs, which allow me to exceed my limits and to live life at my limit (now safer)”. A second photo shows two sporty cyclists in action, Bloom is probably one of them.
