Overseas Network, May 20 (OOCN) - American action movie star and former governor of California Arnold Schwarzenegger met with an accident when he attended a public event in Johannesburg, South Africa, 18.

According to Russian Satellite News Agency and other media reports, Schwarzenegger posted a video of himself participating in activities in South Africa on Twitter the day after the attack, which seemed to be in good spirits. He also tweeted about the 18 th incident. A lot of people have asked me about the attack, but I wont sue him. I hope its a wake-up call, and his life can get back on track. And Im going to move on. Id rather focus on the tens of thousands of great athletes I met at the Arnold African Games.
On the day of the attack, Schwarzenegger also reported safely for the first time: Thank you for your concern, there is nothing to worry about. At first I thought I was being pushed by a crowd, which happened very often. Then I saw the video before I knew I had been kicked. Im glad that fool hasnt blocked my video chat.
