Former Mr Universe fighting for his life after plunging from second storey

A former Mr Universe muscle man is fighting for his life after plunging from a second storey window.

Australian Calum von Moger, 31, has been placed in an an induced coma and undergone a major operation to his spine following his shocking incident last Friday (May 6).

Moger hit mainstream international fame with the 2018 film Bigger, in which he played the part of bodybuilding legend Arnold Schwarzenegger.

He now boasts a massive 3.2million followers on Instagram and runs his own clothing brand which has urged for fans to keep him in their prayers.

According to YouTuber and fellow bodybuilder, Nick Trigilli, Moger was under the influence of drugs when he fell from the window on Friday.

In addition to a horrific back injury, the three-time Mr Universe winner was covered in cuts from the smashed glass, reports claim.

Trigilli said on his BodyBuilding & BS YouTube channel: "Calum is hitting a rough spot… I hope this is rock bottom for him and he can get his life back."

Following reports that he had been booted from his family’s home in Australia, Moger took to Instagram last week to admit he had "messed up bad" but was focused on becoming a "better person".

He captioned a post: "Everyone has a past. We’ve all been through hard times. I admit, I messed up bad many times.

"But I don’t care about dwelling on negative thoughts of the past. All I care about is that I learn from my mistakes and become a better person.

"The positive achievements I’ve done in my life far outweigh the muck-ups I had along the way.

"All I can ask is for your forgiveness so I can keep moving forward on the right path again."

Over the weekend Moger's fans flooded to share their best wishes on his latest Instagram photo.
