Teen Mom 3’s Alex Sekella’s ex Matt McCann in ICU after walking off a cliff

Teen Mom 3 Alex Sekella's ex Matthew McCann

Future Teen Mom 3 star Alex Sekella shared some startling news with her Twitter fans just a moment ago by tweeting that her daughter Arabella’s father Matthew McCann had been involved in an accident and is currently in the Intensive Care Unit. Alex tweeted, “Matt was involved in a horrible accident [he] is in ICU please keep him in your prayers” which led everyone to believe he had been involved in a car accident, but we talked with Alex who tells us that he actually fell off a cliff while partying with friends.

“All I know is he was partying with friends and he walked off a cliff and fell 20 feet,” Alex tells us. Details about the accident are still sketchy, and most all of what Alex knows is from a 1am phone call from Matt’s mother. As far as Matt’s condition, she tells us “He’s in ICU. He can’t move.”

When asked if her daughter Arabella was involved in the incident, Alex tweeted, “of course not she’s not allowed anywhere near him.”

You might remember from Alex’s episode of 16 and Pregnant that Matt has quite the history of substance abuse, and judging from some of her recent tweets, he’s still struggling with it.

Here’s a screen shot of Matt and Alex from her episode:

Meanwhile, Alex’s Teen Mom 3 cast mate Katie Yeager offered up her sympathies by tweeting, “@OfficialSekella let me know if we can do anything for you and belly.” To which Alex responded by tweeting, “@Katiebyeager thanks I miss you guys.”

UPDATE – The Ashley’s Reality Roundup has more details about the accident. It reportedly took place at “a Pennsylvania party spot known as ‘The Knob.'” Matt “broke his neck and several bones in his spine as a result of the fall.” Also, while reportedly trying to get help for Matt, his friends were involved in a car accident! “It was a drinking and driving sort of thing,” Alex told The Ashley. “They claim they were getting help and hit a tree.”

UPDATE – We have some more information now from local reporter Kathy Lauer-Williams blogging for The Morning Call. The “cliff” Matt fell from is called Bake Oven Knob, an elevated outcropping of rocks that is a popular destination on the Appalachian trail due to the amazing view. And, judging from the graffiti in this next photo, it is also a popular destination for rabble rousers:

Kathy spoke with a spokesperson from Lehigh Valley Hospital at Salisbury Township who said Matt was in stable condition Tuesday. Meanwhile, a fan asked Alex moments ago how Matt was doing and her response was, “Well enough to yell at me.”

Here is another shot of Bake Oven Knob, a location that is apparently rumored to be haunted:

    He looks really creepy in that top photo.

    • Katrina

      I know, it reminds me of the guy who killed all those people at The Dark Knight Rises movie

      • Ashley

        Yep, that’s exactly it.

      • SammyG

        I thought the exact same thing. Scary like James Holmes. Gives me the creeps!

  • Well that’ll be one hell of a story to tell people at the bar some day… “Yeah man, I was partying with some friends and totally fell off a cliff!”… Awesome. Hope he recovers and takes this as a wake-up call to get his life back in order.

  • cynthia

    saw that coming!!!

  • Maybe this is a REALITY CHECK for him!!! I am glad she don’t let him go around the baby, because who knows what he would do!!

  • Anyone else see something off about her announcing this on twitter? I don’t know…I find it a little odd. What if people who genuinely care about him didn’t know this happened and she just shared it to all of her “fans”?

    • siriusthecat

      I don’t believe a word of it. Lemme guess she told him to jump off a cliff so he did. I can’t believe how many gossip sites are reposting this. Based on the word of a girl foolish enough to have his baby. If this is BS, they so deserve each other.

  • T

    I am from the same area in PA. If this happened it would be all over the news and it isn’t. So this is most likely false.

  • Atown

    You need permission from the victim or family to post

    • atown down

      says who? you understand how gossip sites work correct? or if you’re referring to twitter, they definitely don’t make you fact check before you start posting

      • siriusthecat

        This isn’t twitter and she gave a detailed account to the first gossip site that asked her. Such specific details are easily disproven. There is no police report associated with the cliff fall or car accident? In 24 hours no one else knows anything of this? Attention seeking ho. Just like she accidently got pregnant. Lied to MTV to even get on the show. She makes Casey Anthony look honest and, sincere, and pretty

  • Aja

    Sad to say but he needed this wake up call. Throughout the whole episode he was either high or dope sick.

  • Jackie

    shame he survived

  • Katie

    Personally, I highly doubt this will be a wake up call for him. Sad to say, but all I see is jail or death in his future.

    • Bri

      I agree.

  • Maybe he shouldn’t be drinking and doing drugs so close to a cliff, it’s sort of a simple concept. This guy was probably one of the worst Teen Dad’s on the show, such a loser. I don’t know what that girl was thinking when she hooked up with that douche.

    • JC

      I actually don’t think he’s the worst. He knew he couldn’t and wasn’t able to do it, and said so. He had a few good points about adoption but Alex was selfist and never really took it as an option and then alex still chased him. in my opinion its better than some of these guys who promise the girls everything while they’re pregnant and disappear after the babies are born and its too late for other options.

  • Bri

    She was one of the MOST BORING teens on the show. I personally believe she just wanted to receive attention from society and her fellow cast remembers.

    • siriusthecat

      I bet she gets plenty of attention for spreading such a crazy story. Please fire her MTV. This is the type of girl that would harm her child for the attention. Look at the pics she posts on her own Facebook! A four month old baby “planking” on a stool with mom “planking” on the next stool. 5 month old baby placed in a way too big toddler ca seat instead of the appropriate rear facing infant seat? She loved the attention, mostly bad, that it brought. People assume Matt will be dead in a few years? Maybe, but people that behave the way she does get themselves murdered or arrested quite often. She tricked this dope into knocking her up, got herself a spot on TV, badmouthed him every chance she could. He’s never going to be able to get a job after all this, but she’ll want support. He is a bum, but according to her he was great before the pregnancy. She’s far worse. Chasing his bike with a car while she was in labor? Falling to the ground in dramatic fashion to get him to stop? Or maybe the baby should have been hurt to teach him a lesson. Her own mother allowed this. Aha that’s where she gets it.

  • Lekota

    Im Matts gf and this is all a LIE
    just saying 😉

  • Chelsea

    Funny how you didnt put the tweet she posted saying no one should be sorry for him breaking his neck and being in the ICU because “its karma”. Gee, cant wait to tune in and watch this girl every week. Just kidding. What a terrible person.
