Dean Unglert was not able to fly because of his injuries

Even after Unglert and Miller-Keyes left the hospital, the two did not immediately leave Switzerland. A fan sent a message to Unglert on Instagram asking why, and Unglert posted an answer on his Instagram story.

“i’ve been asked this a few times. yesterday Swiss Air deemed me medically unfit to fly to Berlin so now we’re taking trains north until we hit London. i’ll probably stay in London for a week or two and rest/heal before the long haul back to LA,” Unglert said.

The ‘Bachelor’ franchise star dislocated his hip while skiing

Before Christmas, Unglert traveled to Switzerland for a skiing trip. He later posted on Instagram that while skiing he was injured and had to have surgery.

“all my life i’ve dreamt about skiing the swiss alps. how could you not? they’re huge and beautiful and have some of the best snow in the world. today, however, was not my day. i was sending just a liiiiitle too hard and took a nasty spill which ultimately put me here. and since this is probably going to be the only pic i get in switzerland, i figured i gotta post it,” he wrote on Instagram.

He continued, “the swiss mountain rescue blew my mind today. it took me about an hour to flag someone down for help but once i did, i was airborne and in surgery in less than an hour. a dislocated hip and fractured femur put 4 screws and a plate in my leg but things could have been so much worse and for that i am extremely grateful! looks like i’ll be celebrating xmas in a hospital bed this year.”

Caelynn Miller-Keyes went to visit Dean Unglert

After Unglert’s accident, Miller-Keyes traveled to Switzerland to be with him. Once in Switzerland, she shared videos on her Instagram story and told her followers that she visited Unglert in the hospital. Unglert later shared a photo on his Instagram story showing the two of them cuddling in his hospital bed while watching You on Netflix.

After Unglert spent five days in the hospital, the two left the hospital together. Unglert posted a video of his first few steps on his Instagram page, writing, “first steps as a free man after 5 short days in the hospital.”

Miller-Keyes posted a video while on a train to Zurich, joking that she “busted” Unglert out of the hospital. She also shared a video on her Instagram story of Unglert smiling while sitting in a chair.

“He’s finally free,” she wrote.

The couple spent New Year’s Eve in Germany

Because Unglert cannot fly yet, the two took a train to Frankfurt, Germany. While in Frankfurt, both Unglert and Miller-Keyes posted videos of a New Year’s Eve fireworks show on their Instagram stories. Miller-Keyes later posted photos of the two of them on her Instagram.

“It’s not the NYE we planned, but I sure am happy I still get to spend it with you,” she wrote in the caption.
