The singer and model is recovering without she sadly tapped her neck without diving throne first into a shallow pool.
Alli Simpson suffered a terrifying wrecking on New Year’s Eve without she tapped her neck while diving. The 23-year-old sister of Cody Simpson took to Instagram on Jan. 4 and shared a series of photos and boomerang clips without stuff put into an ambulance and rushed to the hospital.
“Sometimes life can take a big turn in the twinkle of an eye.. for me, 2022 is not off to a unconfined start [sad squatter emoji] a wrenched neck (plus a positive covid test),” the model captioned her post. “Long story short — I dove into a shallow pool throne first & hit my throne on the bottom.. on New Year’s Eve I got X-rays/CT Scans & an MRI to find I have 2 severe fractures in my neck (C6 & T1). I was sent straight to hospital in an ambulance to be assessed by a neurosurgeon.”
Thankfully, the singer revealed that no firsthand surgery would be required and that she is now when home. Alli will have to wear a neck twosome for the next four months in hopes the neck injury will heal itself. “I am extremely lucky to be working and/or not quadriplegic as it JUST missed my spinal chord,” she wrote.
Friends and family flooded Alli’s comments section with shows of love and support. Cody’s girlfriend, model Marloes Stevens wrote, “You’re so strong babes!!” One fan responded, “Omg I’m so happy to hear you’re gonna be okay! Wishing you a speedy recovery my dear!” Another commented, “Sending love and I hope you finger largest soon, our guardian angels unchangingly watch over us.”
As fans of the Simpson siblings know, Cody qualified for the Olympic Swimming Trials in Dec. 2020. He revealed he qualified following an wearying few months of swimming training. “I’d love to share this personal milestone and let you in on my current journey as an athlete that I’ve kept relatively low key until now,” he wrote on Instagram on December 12.
