On Halloween night, October 31st, former One Life to Live fan favorite Nathaniel Marston (Ex-Al and Ex-Michael) was involved a serious car accident that has rendered him in critical condition.  Marston’s mother, Elizabeth Jackson has been posting updates on her facebook page on her son’s medical status throughout the last 24 to 36 hours, and it is has been heartbreaking.

Jackson first reported:  “Please pray for my son Nathaniel Marston. He was in a car accident last night and is in the intensive care on life support. Back and neck broken in several places. Other internal injuries. Please pray that he will recover and walk again.”

For those who were concerned that alchocol or drugs were a part of the cause of Nathaniel’s car crash, Elizabeth related to his fans, friends, and long time colleagues: “Just spoke to highway patrol and tribal police. In case rumor mill gets going. Nate was sober according to cops.  Waiting to speak to Dr.  Please pray that Nate does not end up a parapalegic … neck broken and fracuted in neck vertabrea 3,4,5,6, and 7. Shoulder broken along with all ribs. Collapsed lung and pnenoma. Please please pray for him”

However, the updates became more intense when Elizabeth posted: “Spoke to Nates Dr. In all likely hood if he lives he will be paralyzed from the neck down and will not breathe without a ventilator machine. Oh my God please give me strength.”

LATEST UPDATE:  On Monday afternoon:  Jackson posted an update to her facebook page which said that Nathaniel went into surgery – stating:  “Nate was able to decide and express very clearly this morning that he is not going to give up without a fight,” she wrote. “He is going into surgery at 3:00 this afternoon. The goal is to get him breathing on his own. The Dr said that there is a good chance that he will recover the use of upper body movement and a slim chance that he will walk again. Recovery will take 2 or more years but where there is life there is hope. Nate has never walked away from a fight and he is determined to win this one….  Both Nate and I appreciate your love prayers and support.”

Marston is dear friend’s whith his former One Life to Live cast mate Michael Easton who posted on his facebook page, a photo of himself with Nathaniel relating: “Please say a prayer for Nathaniel.”

Nathaniel started his soap career as Eddie Silva on As the World Turns.  He next played Al Holden on One Life to Live from 2001-2003, and then after much outcry was brought back to the series as Michael McBain from 2004-2007.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Nathaniel and his family at this time.   On-Air On-Soaps will continue to bring you updates on the situation as they warrant.  Please share your thoughts and prayers for Nathaniel in the comment section below!

He did, Mo. So young. It seems that he has been under a dark cloud for a while. Poor guy. I remember him being fired from OLTL due to his arrest after a brawl in Manhattan.
I pray that his luck will turn for the better and be whole again. No one deserves this….I hope he’s not in pain. And, his poor mother must be a mess!!

Mo

Yes, he has had a lot of probs, some I would say were of his making, but no one deserves this. His mother posted that he did well in the surgery. She sounds very frantic indeed, no surprise.

Hopefully she knows that a lot of people hope he gets better. I didn’t watch OLTL when he was on, but I hope he can improve.

When I hear news like this about strangers, my heart always goes out to the victim and their families. My heart is doubly affected about Nathaniel. I only knew him from his work but he did such a fantastic job of bringing his characters to life. He did a great job with Al but I was partial to Michael McBain. He truly made that character come alive so I guess in some way I feel like I knew him even though I didn’t. I truly feel for his poor mother, family and friends. He’ll be in my thoughts and prayers.… Read more »

Omg this is horrible. I pray for him to get better, at the same time it would not be great for him to be completely paralyzed and not be able to breathe without a ventilator machine! I send prayers to him, his mother and all of their loved ones!

I get that. It wouldn’t be much of a life.

What caused the accident? Was anyone else involved? So said any way you slice it. I believe he was married.

I don’t think his mother has said how it happened, just that police are saying that alcohol wasn’t involved.

From her latest post, it sounds like there is a good chance he will have upper body movement and a slim chance he will walk again. Recovery will be 2 or more years.

So right, Clh. It’s tragedies like this that should make us stop and realize what’s really important…critiquing spelling whilst reading of Nathaniel’s plight is beyond comprehension.

So many times over the decades, when my soap addiction was in full swing and (sadly) all-consuming, I would agonize and worry over many plotlines and the predicaments of the characters for whom I cared. I was so wrapped up in the story, I invested so much energy, effort, time, and emotion. Even at this site, I will sometimes provide impassioned views on something I like or something I don’t like that is going on in the soaps. Bottom line: all of these efforts are just ridiculous… What is happening in the life of Nathaniel Marston is REAL. He is… Read more »
