From a stage diving accident last month, The Word Alive vocalist Telle Smith broke a few ribs, his back, and also bruised a lung. Since then Smith has been recovering. Now, Smith says he is ahead of schedule and will be back in 2016. Read his official Facebook post below.
“Hey guys, first of all I just want to say thank you to every person who has reached out via social media to wish me a fast recovery. November 14th I stage dove at Fox Theatre in Pomona CA into a nearly sold out amazing crowd. However, I landed wrong on an elbow and broke my L2 and L3 vertebrae, sustained hairline fractured to two ribs and had a bruised lung. Ouch! BUT it could have been much worse so I’m very thankful it wasn’t and that none of you were injured!
Fast forward to a month later and I’m already ahead of schedule. I will be back full force in 2016 and will continue to try to get better in every aspect. I love you guys, see you soon I hope!”
