Nick Jonas had a nasty stroke on Wednesday night’s NBC special, Olympic Dreams with the Jonas Brothers. The pre-recorded event saw Nick competing with his older brothers, Joe and Kevin Jonas, in a number of Olympic sports including track and field, gymnastics, and BMX cycling.
During the BMX portion of the special, Nick took a corner and fell hard, causing his two brothers to collide with him and also fall. But it was clear when he went to get up that this was not just a normal fall.
“It screwed up my back,” said the 28-year-old artist, kneeling on the ground in pain.
When his brothers asked him several times if he was okay, Nick replied, “Yeah, I think my rib is screwed too.”
They then brought an ambulance to the set while a grimacing Nick was loaded inside.
The actual injury and recording took place in May, and Nick opened up to ET’s Kevin Frazier at the time about the accident.
“Yeah, a little spill, a fractured rib, and a few other bumps and bruises, but I feel very lucky,” the “Chains” singer shared at the time. “It probably could have been a bit worse, but everything is fine, I’m recovering very well.”
As for what exactly happened that caused the crash, Nick told ET: “Something got caught, the dirt on the bike and it just fell off. But again, I feel good, surprisingly, all things considered. Voice chair right away, he said, ‘Listen, I’m not going to let this hold me back.
