Hollywood actor Tom Green broke his two ribs after being hit by a wave on a beach in Central America. As a consequence, the star was on Monday March 13th, 2006 taken to the hospital to get some treatment before then released the next day.
Recalling the what he called as a "near death experience", Green said on his Website that he was standing on some rocks preparing to go fishing when "a wall of water" hit him.
Then he continued writing "I actually tried to lean into (the wave), as if that would keep me in my footing. It was like leaning into a freight train. And I was gone. I felt my life flash before my eyes. Milliseconds later I slammed hard onto the rocks .... I could feel the cracking of bone."
However, Green has on Wednesday March 15th, revealed an update on his condition writing he's in "severe pain" but feels lucky to be alive. "It just doesn't make any sense that I am not paralyzed, or broken in more places, or dead."
