Zac Efron reportedly almost died over the holidays after contracting a "form of typhoid or similar bacterial ­infection" shortly before Christmas.

The actor, 32, apparently fell ill in Papua New Guinea, and he was flown to hospital in Brisbane, Australia. According to the Sunday Telegraph [via the Daily Mail], it was a "life-or-death flight," but he was in "stable condition" by the time he was admitted to Brisbane's St Andrew's War Memorial Hospital.

Following a few days of treatment, Efron was cleared to return to the U.S. on Christmas Eve.

Efron contracted the illness while filming a survival documentary called Killing Zac Efron. The show is said to follow Efron as he embarks on an off-the-grid adventure with only basic survival supplies.

As of press time, Efron hasn't updated any of his social media accounts since the incident.
