Through a live on his instagram account, Eugenio Derbez told his followers about his current state of health and how he experienced the tragic accident he suffered at the end of last month.
"I want to thank all the expressions of affection, the truth is I'm very happy for the messages that have reached me," Derbez told his fans.
The Mexican also mentioned that due to the severe pain he has been in, he was kept sedated almost day and night for the first two weeks.
During his short speech, he mentioned that the accident he suffered was due to a virtual reality game in which he was competing with his son.
"What I saw in the game did not coincide with what was in my surroundings, I moved my feet and went to hit some steps; it hit my elbow first, pushing the bone making it come out breaking," Derbez mentioned about one of the 15 fractures he has.
To show the seriousness of his injury, Derbez showed an x-ray and explained that doctors warned him that he had to undergo risky surgery.
"I can't describe the pain I felt, I was screaming like crazy and they decided to anesthetize me. The doctor told me that they could not operate on me because I had suffered five large fractures and 10 small ones," said the artist. "My skin was not broken, but it (the bone) came out. When I fell, I heard as if dry branches were breaking, I immediately knew I had a multiple fracture," he finished.
In addition, the actor alerted those who were watching him about the risks of virtual reality games.
"In the last three hospitals I have been in, they have told me that they don't know how many patients have had fractures and all kinds of accidents with virtual reality," he mentioned.
Currently, Eugenio Derbez is staying away from productions while he continues his recovery at home.
