What is Justin Bieber's connection to Samuel Koch?

Who is Samuel Koch? And why is #prayforsamuel trending on Twitter? Your tween or teen may be able to tell you, because there’s a Justin Bieber connection. Koch was injured performing a stunt yesterday and is in intensive care, according to what I was able to piece together from Twitter. Bieber cancelled today’s concert in Germany because of it.

There were some young fans tweeting they were upset that they were missing a chance to see him, but most of the tweets are praying for Samuel’s recovery. It’s sweet to see that much love outpouring on Twitter for a guy so many have never met. It appears Koch was injured on a show of some sort in Germany and was not connected to Bieber before.

Do you know the full story on Samuel Koch? Add your insights below. (There are a lot of articles in German on him on Google News … but I can’t read German.)

    Justin didnt cancel it himself- the show ‘Wetten Dass?’ (Wanna Bet?) cancelled the show for a short period because of the incident. He was doing a run up then a flip over a car coming at him. He performed the flip successfully but then landed badly.

    I translated it from German to English to you but it may be that some things wrong at least I got it translated by google translator.
    Bet candidate Samuel Koch crashed heavily during a jump over a car and immediately had to be emergency medical supplies.

    The 23-year-old had placed to be able to jump with the help of the springs within four minutes of five moving cars. The first attempt worked, the second he broke off. The third was again good, with the fourth candidate crashed into the car and stood motionless to the dismay of all. At the wheel of the car was his own father.

    Paramedics carried the victim out of the hall. A visibly shocked host Thomas Gottschalk were interrupted by the broadcast. The young man was unresponsive and on the way to the hospital, reported the moderator. Shortly after the show Gottschalk broke down completely. “I do not bring complete, now continue to moderate here,” Gottschalk said, pale. It was the first such cancellation in his career.

    What injuries did the candidate could be clarified in the medical examination. Gottschalk asked his audience to understand that he is not the show could continue. “We are committed not to make clear on if we are not gay.” He himself, all other betting candidates and the guests were under the influence of the accident.

  4. David says:

    Yeah, it wasn’t Justin’s show. He was just one performance of many scheduled. Samuel is in IU? I haven’t heard that report here in Germany.

  5. German says:

    A clarification on the timings: Everything happened today. Samuel’s accident took place about 2.5 hours ago and they cancelled it almost immediately; Justin Bieber was scheduled to perform later in the same show.

  6. Steph says:

    Latest news …
    Samuel was in a well known shon in
    Germany, where people make a bet about things they could do. Celebreties who are in this show as well, make a guess whether the would support this guess or not. Well, according to the latest news, Samual was in deep injured but be is feeling his legs. People now asume that he will revover 100%. Bis bet was that he would be able to jump over cars with coil springs. In one of his jumps he didn’t make it and hurt himself seriously. The show was stopped immediately and he seems to be in good stable health.

    Hi there,

    just read your post and would like to get some things right…

    Justin Bieber was supposed to perform on Europe’s most successful tv show “Wetten Dass..?” in Düsseldorf on December 4th, 2010.
    The core gimmick of the “Wetten Dass..?” is the bets: ordinary people offer to perform some unusual (often bizarre) and very difficult task. The other major attraction of the show is the top-ranking celebrity guests, with considerable screen time given to the host greeting and chatting with them. Each of the guests must bet on the outcome of one of the performances and offer a wager, in recent years usually a humorous or mildly humiliating, originally more charitable, activity to be carried out if they lose.

    Contestant Samuel Koch, a 23 year old German student and gymnast, tried to jump over a moving car, driven by his father, wearing “Kangaroo” shoes when he hit the car and fell to the ground on his head. The show was immediately stopped and Koch was rushed to a near-by university hospital. Beside Cher, Take That and Phil Collins also Justin Bieber was due to make an appearance on the canceled show and asked his Twitter followers to pray for Samuel Koch.

    This is the first time in the 27 years history of “Wetten Dass..?” that the live show had to be stopped and be finally canceled due to the worst accident ever to happen on this show.

    Here’s the video footage of the acutal accident:

  9. Steph says:

    One of the upper cervical spine’s is broken, this lead to pressure on the inside of the neck where all the nerves are.
    He is able to feel his legs but has problems to coordinate them –> partial paralysis.
    For god’s sake there is a fair chance that it will regenerate.
    He was set into induced coma now.
    The first operation took 2,3 hours and there will be further necessary operations.

    Samuel Koch is a student from germany and study’s film and theatre. He also is a licenced stuntman and is actively performing stunts and acrobatic scenes.
    He is active as a gymnast and his hobbys are Towerjumping(into water), Riding, fenceing, Power jumping, inline skateing, skiing and snowboarding.

  10. Justin says:

    Samuel Koch is a very nice guy. Please pray for him.
