According to Jenifer Lewis, she was in shock after she fatally fell from a balcony during an African Getaway.

During a recent interview with ABC News, the actress revealed that, as she lay on the ground, a wild cow was ten feet away as Lewis lay on the ground. She also heard a Lion’s roar creeping her out.

“I didn’t know you could be in that much pain and be alive”. Jenifer who released her memoir ‘Walking In My Joy’ in November 2022, wrapped her sitcom Black-ish after eight seasons. The actress said, all was going well and she was about to retire when this incident happened, leaving her in “shock.”

The ‘Think Like A Man’ actress elaborated on her accident during the supposed-to-be “trip of a lifetime” to Serengeti, Africa. Jenifer detailed that, she was on a trip with her friends from Cape Town to Rwanda and stayed in Serengeti in a rural lodge that offered an entrancing landscape view.

Since there were just streetlights, the cabin was black as night after dusk. But when Lewis tried to tour the place, she fell 10 feet deep from the hotel steps.

“I’m walking, and all of a sudden—bam—I had fallen 10 feet into a dry ravine full of boulders and stones and sharp rocks,” she said.

When asked her if she thought she would die, the actress admitted that she did.

“I went from that high kick standing on my star at the Hollywood Walk of Fame, five months later, I was on the ground of the Serengeti, and that same leg couldn’t move,” she said.

As though the fall wasn’t sufficiently horrendous, Lewis also had a close experience with wild creatures. After the actress fell, she couldn’t shout and was lying on the ground out of shock and pain.

“Of course, I was in shock. My right hip took the impact, my shoulder went up against a stone,” and continued, “Nothing would move. So, I laid there, I said, ‘Move your body, baby, come on Jenny, move your body.”

After her friend found her, she rushed to get help, and Lewis heard a lion roar. Now recalling the dreadful moment, she said,

“My last thought, because I am Jenifer Lewis, was, what a headline, the king at the queen. Pieces of Jenifer Lewis’ body being flown back to the states.”

It’s been two years since the episode, and Lewis has practically recovered.
