Jason Derulo fractures his neck

This past January, singer, Jason Derulo fractured his neck while rehearsing for his European tour. He was practicing an acrobatic move and landed directly on his head, suffering a fracture to his vertebra. He was fortunate that he was not paralyzed. In fact he only has to wear a neck brace for a few months. His injury is called a “Hang Man's Break” because it is the same bone that is broken when someone is hung by the neck. 95% of people with this injury end up paralyzed or dead. When Derulo was asked what he was feeling about his injury, his response was “To all my fans who planned to come to the Future History World Tour, the pain of letting you down cuts me way deeper than this injury I've sustained.”
“My fans mean everything to me, so I'm praying for a speedy recovery in order to perform for you in the near future.”
