Orlando Bloom is reflecting on “narrowly escaping death” in 1998. The 44-year-old wrote on IG: “That’s me in my back brace circa 1998 about 3 months after I fell 3 floors and crushed my spine, narrowly escaping death and paralysis,” alongside an old photo of himself riding a bike and wearing a brace. “Grateful everyday for my limbs that allow me to push my limits and live life on my edge (safer now🙏).”
Bloom's fiancée, Katy Perry, commented on the post, writing, “I love you.” Miranda Kerr, the actor's ex-wife, also wrote, “So proud of you ❤️.”
He previously told GQ in 2005 that it happened when he was climbing a rooftop and a drainpipe collapsed, causing him to plummet three stories.
