The Suicide Squad actor, captioned the initial Twitter post featuring a photo of him gripping onto the side of a cliff and his frayed support rope, writing:

“Not to sound dramatic, but this is the day I nearly died. Took a pretty good fall climbing with @AlexHonnold at Red Rock. Looked up and within seconds the rope was being cut by the rock while I dangled some 600 ft in the air. I remember looking down at the ground below.”

Leto followed up the original Tweet with a short ten-second video of the incident where his helmet cam recorded the footage of the Thirty Seconds to Mars frontman frantically gasping for air and attempting to calm his nerves, as he states:

“Holy f*cking sh*t! Holy f*ck! It was fraying right at the point!”

With Jared Leto and the rest of the Morbius (2020) cast preparing to go into full promo mode prior to the release of the “Living Vampire” movie in July, it would be tragic if the world and the production lost their leading man to an unexpected rock climbing accident.
