Hong Kong superstar Andy Lau was rushed back to Hong Kong in the early hours of today after he sustained pelvic fractures from a horseback-riding accident in Thailand.

 

The 55-year-old star was filming a commercial outside of Bangkok which required a scene of him riding a horse, Coconuts Bangkok reports. Sometime during the shoot on Tuesday, the horse suddenly threw Lau off its back and reportedly stepped on his lower body, according to Apple Daily. He was immediately rushed to a local Thai hospital for treatment. At around 12:15 today (Jan. 19), Lau arrived at Hong Kong International Airport on an emergency medical plane and was taken to the Hong Kong Sanatorium and Hospital in Happy Valley.

 

A statement posted by a subsidiary of his production company, Focus Group, read: "Whilst filming an advertisement in Thailand on January 17, 2017, Mr. Andy Lau was injured when a horse stepped on him and fractured his pelvis. A medical team took care of him and everything is fine at the moment. There is no cause for concern."

 

The actor, who has had a thriving music career since 1985, is fondly known as one of the "Four Heavenly Kings of Cantopop", which also includes fellow singers Jacky Cheung, Aaron Kwok and Leon Lai. Lau has appeared in over 180 movies, but is perhaps best known for his starring role in the 2002 film "Infernal Affairs", which was later adapted by American director Martin Scorsese into the Academy Award-winning film, "The Departed", in which his character was played by Hollywood actor Matt Damon. His latest movie, a fantasy epic called "The Great Wall", also starring Matt Damon, is currently in cinemas.

I hope Andy will be alright and that the injury wasn't too serious. Pelvic fractures take a long time to heal.

Praying for Andy Lau a speedy recovery. This remind of a incident that happen to Christopher Reeve aka Superman when he fell off a horse.
