Watch as Jackass star Steve-O breaks both his legs in dangerous skateboarding stunt
STEVE-O has shattered his ankle while attempting a skateboarding stunt.
The Jackass star even filmed the shocking incident as he attempted to jump over a car.
Filmed by skateboarding star Tony Hawk, the clip shows the 42 year old standing on top of a wooden portal.
A car then ploughs through the structure with Steve-O attempting to ride over the car on his skateboard.
As if doing it once wasn’t enough, Stacey Solomon’s ex actually attempted the leap three times.
His awkward landings resulted in a number of painful-sounding injuries.
Tony captioned the video on Instagram: “My videos of @officiallysteveo’s stunt debacle yesterday
“Final injury tally: broken/dislocated ankle, fractured heel, and sprained wrist. Don’t try this at home… or anywhere.”
The MTV star later shared a hospital selfie, revealing that he was set for surgery.
“I really did a number on myself today,” he told his 2.4million Instagram followers.
“Apologies in advance for the images of my foot sticking out sideways – wish me luck in surgery!”
Steve-O spoke to TMZ about his incident saying doctors set his ankle in a temporary cast and will have surgery once the swelling goes down.
He added that he didn’t take any pain medication following the incident as he’s a recovering addict.

In 2008, he checked himself into an undisclosed rehab facility.
He then wrote a ‘goodbye letter’ to all the substances he’s been abusing including alcohol, marijuana, nitrous oxide, amphetamines, LSD, ketamine and cocaine.
Steve-O, real name Stephen Glover, sent the email to his friends as he updated them with progress of his hospital stay.
“All you f**ing things are good for is dying,” he wrote to the drugs.
“I’m not ready to die. I’m ready to live.
“It became frighteningly clear to me how lucky I am to still have any chance whatsoever at leading a happy, fulfilling and meaningful life.
“My luck will not last with continued use of alcohol and drugs that are not prescribed to me by doctors that are aware of my addictions.
“My friends are still my friends, but also understand that my health requires that I not be around drugs and alcohol.”
