'Prison Break' Star Is 'Grateful To Be Alive' After Accident Whilst Filming New Series

There's been drama on the set of the new Prison Break after one of the main stars was airlifted to hospital after a freak accident.

Dominic Purcell broke his nose in two places and suffered some nasty looking cuts to his face after an iron bar fell on his head during filming.

The series is being filmed in Morocco, so when the accident happened, Purcell was transported by helicopter from Marrakesh to Casablanca for urgent hospital treatment.


Luckily, this bloke is as hard as he looks. He posted these images on Instagram taking the mickey out of the incident, even saying that he was getting a 'free nose job' out of it. He added: "Doc said I have an unusually tough tissue fiber that's what saved me apparently. Thank god for my #Viking heritage hahaha !!!!"

His girlfriend, AnnaLynne McCord, was with him throughout the whole ordeal and is said to have 'not left his side'.


He wrote on Instagram: "Thank god my love @theannalynnemccord was there when my unfortunate accident occurred on set.

"She went into raging #momma mode along with #christinanorthup and got me the right care. Show goes on. No worries !!!

"Oh being airlifted out on a helicopter was another adventure I didn't expect. Thought the bloody thing was going to fall from the sky!!! What a day it was. Grateful to be alive."


But did he learn anything? He said: "I wish I could say I discovered something profound out of my near miss. Ummmmm nothing yet just a broken nose and a hundred stitches in my head."
