Australian actor and bodybuilder Calum von Moger is in an induced coma after falling from the second-floor window of a house.

According to bodybuilding publication Generation Iron, Mr von Moger is fighting for his life after undergoing surgery for injuries suffered from the accident on May 6.

Fellow bodybuilder and Youtuber Nick Trigili said in a video posted on his YouTube channel, BodyBuilding & BS, that the 31-year-old was allegedly under the influence of drugs at the time of the incident and was suffering with mental health issues.

Just last week, Mr Moger had posted an emotional Instagram post admitting he's "messed up bad many times", asking for forgiveness.

Police allegedly found Mr von Moger in possession of drugs of dependence, including methylamphetamine and cannabis, in Melbourne on January 31, the Herald Sun reported.

In the YouTube video, Mr Trigili said Calum was injured “pretty bad” in the incident, damaging his spine to the point of not being able to walk.

“They had to call an ambulance and now he’s sedated in ICU,” he said.

He added Mr von Moger is now fighting for his life and had also recently suffered some “stupid injuries in the gym”.

Mr Trigili also referred to Instagram stories Mr von Moger posted before his accident blaming his friends and family — particularly his parents — for abandoning him, showing a screenshot Mr von Moger had posted alleging his father told him to move out.

"He seems to be triggered and I feel like this current event that just happened to him with him jumping out the window allegedly it seems like it was triggered because he was upset by the probably because of his parents, the way they treated him".

Bodybuilder admits 'mistakes' in Instagram post

On March 30 Mr von Moger posted an Instagram post saying he hopes to “learn from [his] mistakes and become a better person”.

“Everyone has a past. We’ve all been through hard times,” he said, asking for forgiveness to move "forward on the right path again”.

Mr von Moger last posted on Instagram a week ago, reflecting on an injury he suffered four years ago when he tore his quad from the bone.

"I couldn’t walk for 8 weeks and had to start bodybuilding from scratch over again," he captioned the images showing him post injury and now.

"2.5 years later I won the npc mr. universe and received my pro card. If I can do it, so can you."
