Dean Unglert dislocated his hip while skiing

On Dec. 23, Unglert let fans know that he dislocated his hip while skiing in Switzerland. The Bachelor in Paradise star shared a photo on Instagram detailing how his injury occurred.

“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 said in the Instagram post.

Unglert 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.”
