Hong Kong Superstar to Get $10.3 Million in Insurance for Horse-Riding Injury

Hong Kong star Andy Lau will get HKD $80 million ($10.3 million) in total insurance for injuries he sustained while riding a horse during a commercial shoot on January 17.

The incident occurred while the 55-year-old actor was filming a scene for a tea commercial in Khao Lak, Thailand. He was on top of the horse which suddenly threw him off, stomping on him after.

According to The Star, he is set to receive MYR 195,000 ($44,000) a day in compensation for 51 days of hospitalization and another six months of rehabilitation.

“The Great Wall” star is currently recovering from multiple fractures at home. Over the weekend, he shared a video where he dressed as a cowboy and told fans on his website (via The Straits Times):

“Every day I’m sitting a little bit longer. Every day I’m standing a little bit longer. One day I’ll take the first step. I’m tough!”

In response, delighted supporters messaged, “Boss is the best, proud of you” and “Waiting for you to run and jump.”

We wish Andy a speedy recovery!
