Prison Break actor Dominic Purcell has sustained serious injuries after an incident occurred in Mexico.
While the cast were shooting the revival series, Dominic was involved in an accident where an iron bar fell on his head, breaking his nose in two places and splitting his head open.
The actor, who’s mother is Irish, is lucky to be alive. He thanked his “viking heritage” for his recovery, and is grateful to be doing well.
Writing on Instagram he said: “Had a little accident on set…Pays to have a thick skull when an iron bar falls on your head, busting it open severely also broke my nose in two places.
“I got a free nose job out of it…… Stoked to be alive. All good.
“Doc said I have an unusually tough tissue fiber that’s what saved me apparently. Thank god for my #Viking heritage.”
Despite the severe accident, Dominic has said he will be returning to work as soon as possible. He’s such a pro!
We wish him a speedy recovery.
