The TV presenter and adventurer Bear Grylls went to his verified Instagram account with a couple of photos in order to answer the question that whether he is still suffering from the skydiving accident he had almost 25 years ago.
On March 31, the ‘Celebrity Island with Bear Grylls‘ star released a photo of his back bearing two giant scars from the parachuting accident plus another photo of himself having an ice bath. Underneath the photos which are proof that he is a real survivor, the TV personality wrote that he is still suffering severe injury and related pain.
“People sometimes ask me if my back ever hurts having broken it all those years ago in a parachuting accident. The answer is every day.”
Stating that the treatment he received for it is highly intense, Grylls added that he still needs to battle with the sustained injury.
“Life can at times be a battle for everyone and most people have their stuff to carry with them through the adventures. I choose just to be grateful for the opportunity to still be able to life live as best I can.”
The well-known adventurer concluded his words with a short note saying that he is having an ice bath seven days a week to keep himself “ strong inside and out.”
As fans might know, the 46-year-old fractured three vertebrae after his parachute failed to inflate while skydiving over Zambia. Following the accident which happened in 1996, he went through a year of rehabilitation. According to what he stated above, all of the rehabilitations and treatments a little bit alleviated his pain.
