Alli Simpson, the Australian model, singer and sister of Cody Simpson, has revealed a severe injury she received on New Year’s Eve.
Taking to Instagram, Simpson posted a series of pictures and a video depicting her neck in a brace at Gold Coast University Hospital after sustaining injuries from a freak pool incident.
Simpson, 23, was celebrating New Year’s Eve when she dived into the shallow end of a swimming pool, a move which left her with multiple fractures in her neck, but thankfully, no damage to her spinal column.
“The outcome - no immediate surgery was required and I have been sent home in a hard neck brace that I’ll be living in 24/7 for the next four months as my neck hopefully heals itself,” Simpson shared.
“I am extremely lucky to be alive and/or not quadriplegic as it JUST missed my spinal cord. The way I see it, four months is a drop in the ocean when it comes to the rest of my happy and healthy life,” she added.
Adding insult to injury, Simpson was also required to take a Covid test, which came back positive.
We’re just hoping the rest of the year treats Alli better!
