TikTok Star Caleb Coffee Survives 80-Foot Fall
Popular TikTok star Caleb Coffee is recovering in the hospital after surviving an 80-foot fall from a cliff in Hawaii.
Coffee, who has over 11 million followers on the social media platform, was hiking with three friends when he fell off the cliff. He was airlifted to a nearby hospital with serious injuries, including a spinal fracture, broken femur, elbow, and wrist, and multiple gouges and burns.
Coffee’s family has set up a GoFundMe page to help with his medical expenses. The page has raised over $17,000 so far.
In a video posted to TikTok from his hospital bed, Coffee thanked his supporters and said that he is “doing his best to get better.” He also revealed that this wasn’t his first near-death experience.
“When I was younger I had severe seizures, grand mal seizures, and I almost died and yesterday I almost died as well,” he said.
“Sixty to 80 feet is … I can’t even fathom that, I don’t even remember. I just woke up and I thought I was going to die. And then I didn’t die, so thank you God,” he added.
Coffee’s family said that he is “stable, conscious, talking and in good spirits.” They said that he has a long road to recovery, but they are confident that he will get through it.
“Caleb is a strong and resilient young man, and we know he will overcome this,” they said.
Coffee’s accident is a reminder of the dangers of hiking in unfamiliar terrain. It is important to be aware of your surroundings and to take precautions to stay safe.
If you are planning a hike, be sure to do your research and to let someone know where you are going. It is also a good idea to wear proper footwear and to bring plenty of water and snacks.
We wish Caleb a speedy recovery.
