Former AFL Star Involved In Horror Balcony Fall

Colin Sylvia has taken to Instagram to warn others to be careful, after the former Melbourne and Fremantle midfielder fell from a balcony.

The former AFL star received a fractured neck and bleeding to the brain. One photo posted to Sylvia’s Instagram shows the former No.3 draft pick with blood all over his face and another shows him sporting a neck brace. 

Alongside the image Sylvia wrote: "Not ideal start to the weekend ... your (sic) not supposed to fall off balconys apparently!” 

“I’d have to agree — fractured my neck and bleeding to the brain. Extremely lucky. Doing a great job the team down here at the Alfred. Be careful and stay safe everyone.”

It’s unclear exactly what happened, but we’re just glad he's ok.
