Less than 18 months after breaking his back whilst riding his electric bike, Simon Cowell has once again been seriously injured in ANOTHER cycling accident.
Whilst enjoying a cycle ride near his London home, Simon is reportedly ‘lucky to be alive’ after he was sent flying over the handlebars of his e-bike.
Simon was rushed to hospital on Thursday with suspected concussion, facial cuts and a broken arm after he was catapulted into the road at 20mph.
Passersby rushed to help as Simon was covered in blood after the horrific incident. They stopped the traffic and called an ambulance, comforting the dazed star until paramedics arrived at the scene.
A source from the scene explained that blood was gushing from his face, likening him to something from the Phantom of the Opera.
They went on to tell The Sun: ‘Simon is lucky to be alive. He was pedalling along, with his electric motor on, when the wheels suddenly went from under him after hitting a wet patch.
‘He slipped and went flying over the handlebars into the middle of the road.’
After being taken in an ambulance to the nearby Chelsea and Westminster hospital, Simon was X-rayed and eventually released with rest orders – and has since been seen with a lime green cast up to his shoulder.
Simon’s seven-year-old son Eric reportedly chose his dad’s cast and has already been busy customising it! He has signed his name and drawn their two dogs, Squiddly and Diddly on the bright green cast!
Despite this being his second nasty experience with an e-bike, Simon insists he’s not ditching the machine — but he will now start wearing a helmet.
Simon is now recovering at home with his family.
