Jorgensen and his wife, Pam, both spent a week in the hospital.
“I broke my tibia down here, fractured my wrist up in here, fractured my cheekbone up in here, so you can still kind of see it’s swollen and a little disfigured,” Jorgensen says.
They both spent five nights in the hospital where they both had two surgeries to repair their broken left legs.
