Splash has had a fourth on set injury, this time requiring hospitalization.
Nicole Eggert, former Baywatch star and current competitor on the high dive reality show, hit the water on her back while attempting a high-dive involving back-flips reports Us Weekly.
While on-site EMTs were available to pull the actress from the water, she was still rushed to a nearby hospital for evaluation. According to the Inquisitr, Eggert suffered no broken bones but was held due to concern for possible internal injuries and fear of kidney damage.
Eggert was later released, tweeting "The ER is always fun."
Unfortunately for the show, this is the latest in a string of injuries. Kendra Wilkinson recently quit the show under doctor's orders, reportedly for a back injury, while
Chuy Bravo was sidelined due to a heel injury
"I went to the doctor and, unfortunately, he told me I'm out for the competition," Wilkinson stated, according to E!.
These competitors are not faced with the safest of tasks, or at least that is the though of co-host Joey Lawrence.
"You think about propelling your body 32 feet into the water," Lawrence told Zap2It. "You're hitting that water at about 25 miles an hour. You don't hit the water correctly, you could break bones. These are serious injuries that could last a lifetime."
However, Eggert later tweeted, "Thnx 4 all the love but I am not in the hospital nor was I in a diving accident. Just have swelling and bruising on my back and kidney's. xo"
Which ever the case, It looks like Katherine Webb, who left the show due to fear, had the right idea.
