Alli Simpson is reflecting on life after she suffered a terrible accident on New Year’s Eve.

Simpson posted on her Instagram on Monday and shared she has “two severe fractures” in her neck after she “dove into a shallow pool head first and hit my head on the bottom.

“Sometimes life can take a big turn in the blink of an eye,” the Australian singer wrote in her caption. “For me, 2022 is not off to a great start. A broken neck (plus a positive COVID test.)”

She wrote that “no immediate surgery was required” for her injury and she will now have to spend the next four months in a hard neck brace.

“I am extremely lucky to be alive and/or not quadriplegic as it JUST missed my spinal cord,” Simpson revealed. “The way I see it, four months is a drop in the ocean when it comes to the rest of my happy and healthy life.”

Along with her lengthy caption Simpson shared a series of photos in her post, including one that pictures her in a hospital bed with a neck brace and a positive COVID test.

“As you can imagine, I have been in endless tears and thanking every guardian angel watching over me in the pool that night plus every moment since. To say the least-I have a new lease on life and will be forever grateful that it was not worse!” she wrote.

She ended the post with expressing her gratitude for her friends, family, paramedic and medical staff, and a warning to swimmers, “DON”T DIVE INTO ANYTHING WHEN YOU DON”T KNOW IT”S [sic] DEATH!’

Her brother Cody Simpson commented on his sister’s accident and said he is “grateful” she’s Ok.
