Tragic news in the soap opera community today.

Former One Life to Live star Nathaniel Marston is in critical condition following a serious car accident on Saturday.

A later update to the Facebook page detailed the horrific nature of Marston’s injuries: “Just spoke to highway patrol and tribal police. In case rumor mill gets going. Nate was sober according to cops. Waiting to speak to Dr.” The concerned mother requested that his fans pray that he doesn’t wind up a paraplegic as his neck is broken, vertebrae 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 were fractured, his shoulder and all his ribs were broken, and his lung has collapsed.

Another update followed shortly thereafter: “Spoke to Nates Dr. In all likely hood if he lives he will be paralyzed from the neck down and will not breathe without a ventilator machine. Oh my God please give me strength.”

Our thoughts are with Nathaniel Martson and his family and loved ones at this time.
