Rob Lowe Surfing Accident


Rob Lowe got into a surfing accident on Sunday that left him very bloody and in need of stitches.

The handsome actor was surfing on Sunday morning when he injured his right knee bad. Lowe, wearing red swim trunks and holding his surfboard while his knee bled profusely, still posed for a hot photo that he posted to Instagram (below). He captioned the pic in which you can see bloody pouring down his leg, “So sharky!”

Lowe followed up that post with a message on Twitter that read, “The amount of blood that can unwantedly come out of one’s body is amazing.” Apparently, it was so much that he required a bunch of stitches. Lowe also posted a rather graphic photo of his knee being sewn up by a doctor after his accident (below). He captioned that pic, “My day so far. I will live. #SurfStitches.”

Despite all the blood and the gruesome shot of Lowe getting stitches, he seemed to be in a pretty good mood. We’re sure he’ll be back in the water as soon as his doctor gives him the OK.

The actor, who helped promote the Discovery Channel’s “Shark Week” this past summer, is a big-time surfer who did a spread for Parade about the sport in 2013. He said, at the time, “As an avid surfer, I am at home in the water,” and noted, “My family and I spend a lot of time on the ocean.”

Gossip Cop wishes Lowe a speedy recovery.
