Season nine contestant of The Biggest Loser, Sam Poueu was injured badly in a fall over the weekend, and is currently in ICU. Details have finally emerged of the accident, as TMZ is now reporting that sources have told them: “he suffered a pelvic injury, torn ligaments, a punctured lung, and a broken leg,” after falling several stories from a building.
Earlier this week, Sam’s cousin, Koli Palu stated: “Sam Poueu has made serious improvement in the last few hours. He has become very responsive to Stephanie Anderson and his Mother, squeezing their hands and kicking his feet. The head trauma has pretty much stabilized. He still has a long way to go but thank you so much for your love and prayers,” and TMZ says their sources have also stated that Sam is recognizing visitors now.
While it is still unclear how he fell, Sam Poueu continues to make improvements though he remains in ICU, and TMZ has spoken to Dr. H of The Biggest Loser and reported that while he can’t make specific comments about Sam’s current condition, he also says that Sam is doing better every day.
