Entertainment Tonight spoke to Ryan shortly after the incident, who said, ‘Well, ordinance collapsed and that was a little, I think it looked worse than it was. All I was worried about were the people that were—what you could tell is that they were falling, like, “Oh, they’re gonna be fine,” and it’s like, “Oh, but that leg is gonna go,” so I jumped out. But it was, yeah, everyone was fine.’
He added, ‘My only job that Blake said as I was leaving was, “Just come home in one piece.” So that was my only job.’
Truly, this is so scary-looking! Glad Ryan and his leg are okay.
