This simply means there were a lot of accidents on the island during the survival challenges. Moreover, in the 'Survivor' preview, a medical emergency was also teased. One of the contestants can be seen on the ground while Probst said, "everybody stop… medical emergency" with another contestant asking someone, "can you please open your eyes for me... keep breathing."

Additionally, a saline drip was also teased with Probst saying, "they will be stripped to their cores." One of the contestants teased that she thought 'Survivor' would be against people but it's more about the elements and challenges. 18 contestants, who are left stranded on an island, will fight with and for each other to survive in the upcoming season.

'Survivor' season 44 contestant suffers scary fall

'Survivor' Season 44 starts with a very scary fall of a contestant. The preview shows Matthew Grinstead-Mayle climbing the cliff with the background voice saying, "I think the biggest lesson that I've learned from watching Survivor over the year is that no matter where you come from... whether you have money... if you are a guy or a girl.... if you are a gay dad like me... anyone can come here and have the drive and succeed." He added, "You just have to want it. You have to be just fearless. I know that it’s gonna be crazy and I’m just gonna keep holding on even if I’ve got only one arm." Matthew suddenly falls from the rocky cliff beside the shore.

'Survivor' Season 44 will premiere on March 1 at 8 pm ET/PT on CBS.
