Jason Derulo is lucky to be alive after fracturing a vertebrae in his neck. The singer injured himself earlier in the week while practicing a routine and could well have been killed or paralysed from the injury.

The ‘Flying Solo’ singer revealed lucky he was in a Facebook post to fans. Jason, who has been forced to cancel his tour next month posted the message from his hospital bed in Miami, Florida.

“My injury is called a 'Hang Man's Break' because it is the same bone that is broken when someone is hung ! I am so blessed to still be here! 95 per cent of ppl with the same injury end up paralysed or gone," he wrote.

The injury seemed to give the 22-year-old a chance to reflect on life and he was philosophical over why the accident had happened, he said: “Everything happens for a reason. Traumatic experiences can change you for the better. My outlook on life is so much clearer! Don't forget what's important. Life is short so do it today, tomorrow could be a day too late!”

The accident means that Jason's planned UK tour in February has been cancelled.
