A three-time winner of the Mr Universe bodybuilding competition is fighting for his life in hospital after falling out of a second-story window, crushing his back
A former Mr. Universe muscleman is fighting for his life after falling out of a second floor window.
Australia’s Calum von Moger, 31, was placed in an induced coma and underwent major surgery on his spine following his shocking incident last Friday (May 6).
Moger rose to international fame in the 2018 film Bigger, in which he played bodybuilding legend Arnold Schwarzenegger.
He now has a whopping 3.2million followers on Instagram and runs his own clothing brand which has urged fans to keep him in their prayers.
According to YouTuber and fellow bodybuilder Nick Trigilli, Moger was under the influence of drugs when he fell out of a window on Friday.
In addition to a horrific back injury, the three-time Mr. Universe winner was covered with lacerations from the shattered glass, according to reports.
Trigilli said on his BodyBuilding & BS YouTube channel, “Calum is hitting a hard point… I hope this is the bottom for him and he can get his life back.”
Following reports he’d been booted out of his family’s home in Australia, Moger took to Instagram last week to admit he’d “screwed up badly” but was focused on becoming a “better person”.
He captioned one post: “Everyone has a past. We’ve all been through tough times. I admit I’ve done badly many times.
“But I don’t care about dwelling on negative thoughts from the past. All I care about is that I learn from my mistakes and become a better person.
“The positive achievements I’ve made in my life far outweigh the failures I’ve had along the way.
“I can only ask for your forgiveness so that I can move forward on the right path again.”
Over the weekend, Moger’s fans flocked to share their best wishes in his latest Instagram photo.
