The Black Keys drummer Patrick Carney is recovering after dislocating his shoulder in a freak beach accident in St. Barths.

The rocker, who is currently on vacation on the Caribbean island, was hospitalized on Saturday after he was slammed to the ocean floor by a massive wave.

The impact of the hit caused Carney's arm to pop out of place, and he had to be placed under anaesthesia so doctors could reset his shoulder, according to TMZ.com.

He has since been discharged and has taken to Instagram to joke about his injury, writing, "Tune into my new lifetime movie. 'Dislocated shoulder' airing right now."

It is not yet known if Carney's mishap will affect The Black Keys' touring schedule - they are next due to perform in tribute to Bob Dylan on February 6, when he is honoured as the MusiCares Person of the Year in Los Angeles, before heading out on a European tour.
