'Biggest Loser' Competitor

In Critical Condition

After Falling Several Stories

9/8/2011 6:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

One of the contestants from "Biggest Loser" Season 9 is listed in critical condition at a San Francisco hospital, TMZ has learned -- after plummeting several stories from a building on September 3rd.

It's unclear how he fell -- but sources close to Sam Poueu tell us ... he suffered a pelvic injury, torn ligaments, a punctured lung, and a broken leg during the accident.

According to sources, Sam -- who was a fan favorite on the show last year -- is currently recovering in the ICU -- but while he's listed in critical condition, we're told he can still recognize visitors.

Dr. H from "Biggest Loser" tells us, he can't make specific comments about Sam's current condition -- but claims Sam is doing better every day.

It isn't necessarily suicide people. There have been a few construction accidents in the city recently. One in particular when a concrete pour on the roof caused a collapse and sent workers in a stair well plummeting several floors. Perhaps he is working in construction and was involved in one of these accidents?

Most of these posts are totally idiotic. Sam is in critical condition and lame people who have nothing better to do are assuming he chose to put himself in this situation. I hope God takes mercy on your soul.

I'm a huge Biggest Loser fan and Sam (and his cousin) is possibly my all time favorite contestant(s). My heart and prayers go out to Sam and his family.

I can't believe some of these stupid, hateful comments. Sam has lost a ton of weight. He is engaged to be married and he is a personal trainer at the Biggest Loser Resort in Malibu. We don't know the details and most of you look like idiots for what you are typing. Get well Sam. Positive thoughts coming your way.
