“I just fell. 99% sure I just dislocated my hip. Hopefully, ski patrol is on the way. I called them and they didn’t seem too concerned,” Dean, 28, said on his Instagram Story while sprawled out in the snow.
He then explained how he was able to get help. “I quickly realized my leg wasn’t good enough to be skied on. My next idea was to find a way to slide myself to a main run. Thank God for a random guy who came across me and was able to flag down help.”
“Laid here for an hour before someone finally skied by,” Dean added.
The BIP star took to social media a few hours after his ski accident with a selfie of him in the hospital. “All my life I’ve dreamt about skiing the Swiss Alps. How could you not? They’re huge and beautiful and have some of the best snow in the world. Today, however, was not my day.”
“I was sending just a liiiiitle too hard and took a nasty spill which ultimately put me here,” he explained. “And since this is probably going to be the only pic I get in Switzerland, I figured I gotta post it.”
The travel blogger continued, “The Swiss mountain rescue blew my mind today. It took me about an hour to flag someone down for help but once I did, I was airborne and in surgery in less than an hour.”
Dean ended up suffering multiple injuries. He told his fans he had “a dislocated hip and fractured femur put four screws and a plate in my leg.” The BIP star still remained positive and added, “But things could have been so much worse and for that, I am extremely grateful! Looks like I’ll be celebrating Christmas in a hospital bed this year ?.”
