Season nine contestant of The Biggest Loser, Sam Poueu was injured badly in a fall last weekend, and for the past week, we have been unable to find out how it happened. Sam Poueu’s family and friends finally opened up and shared some details on his accident and how it happened! According to People Magazine, Sam Poueu was at a friend’s birthday bash when he went out onto the rooftop of a friend’s apartment, and accidentally got locked out. Sam’s family told the magazine that Sam: “attempted to climb down the fire escape ladder to drop down into the fourth floor balcony and slipped.”
Luckily for Sam Poueu, a nearby neighbor saw the accident and called the fire department immediately, who were able to get there quickly and tend to Sam. His family went on to add of his injuries: “Sam suffered many serious internal injuries and a trauma to the right side of his head. Sam has made positive and encouraging strides since his accident. Since being admitted to the hospital, Sam has stayed strong through three surgeries. To date, many of his internal injuries are on the healing mend.”
While Sam Poueu has a long road to recovery ahead of him, his family is thankful that he is getting better, and thankful for all the prayers as they also told the magazine: “Although he is in wonderful hands, we ask for your continued prayers and understanding as Sam and our families get through this difficult time. Praise God for our fighter Sam.”
We will continue to update you as we get more details or information. Please, even if you were not a fan of Sam Poueu on The Biggest Loser, keep him in your prayers and thoughts. Sam, all of us here at RTVM are sending our prayers out to you and your family during this tough time, get well soon!
