A scary start to the new year!
On Monday, January 3, Cody Simpson‘s younger sister Alli revealed on Instagram that her 2022 kicked off with not only a positive COVID-19 test, but also a broken neck.
“Sometimes life can take a big turn in the blink of an eye,” the 23-year-old wrote.
In a series of photos and videos, Alli can be seen lying in what appears to be a hospital bed in a neck brace and numerous cords attached to her body.
“Long story short — I dove into a shallow pool head first & hit my head on the bottom.. on New Year’s Eve,” the “Notice Me” singer explained in the caption. “I got X-rays/CT Scans & an MRI to find I have 2 severe fractures in my neck.”
Alli was sent straight to hospital in an ambulance and assessed by a neurosurgeon, she said. Luckily, no immediate surgery was required, and she was sent home in a hard neck brace that she says she’ll “be living in 24/7 for the next 4 months” as she recovers.
