Poueu's family has released a statement to People that says the accident took place at a birthday celebration in San Francisco. The former reality star was stuck on a rooftop after a door locked behind him and...

He "attempted to climb down the fire escape ladder to drop down into the fourth floor balcony and slipped. The San Francisco Fire Department responded within minutes thanks to a neighbor's immediate call."

Poueu, who is engaged to another former Biggest Loser contestant, Stephanie Anderson, has undergone three surgeries so far and is on "the healing mend," his family says, adding a thank-you to fans, along with the following note:

"He still has a long road ahead and is already a true testament to the power of prayer. Our faith remains that God will heal him completely according to His will. We are thankful for the miracles we have already witnessed in his recovery and are thankful for the dedicated medical personnel attending to him."
