'Cake Boss' Star Buddy Valastro Details Hand Injury: 'There Was Blood Everywhere'

Buddy Valastro is opening up about his hand injury that occurred last weekend.

The 43-year-old Cake Boss star and pastry chef spoke to Good Morning America about the incident and how his sons leapt into action to help him out and get him to the hospital quickly.

“The machine got stuck and I went behind it to fix it, which I’ve done 100 times, and for one split moment I must’ve turned my head and then my right hand got caught between a fork and this other mechanism that goes through the fork and it kind of wedged my hand in there,” Buddy detailed the accident of what happened.

He added that the fork “blew through my ring finger and my middle finger as it barbed in my hand and I was stuck. It kind of crushed my thumb cause it was still moving back and forth.”

“For some crazy reason I’m on top of this thing and got this metal rod through my hand, blood is everywhere,” Buddy recalled. “I don’t know what kept me calm cause I was in excruciating pain.”

He also credits his two elder sons, Buddy Jr and Marco, for remaining calm along with him.

“I couldn’t be prouder of my two sons — they jumped into action — and within five minutes they had to undo a bolt, saw off one piece of metal, and then I was in my driveway. We jumped into my brother in law’s car and drove down to Morristown Hospital,” Buddy shared.

Since the accident, Buddy has went through two surgeries, which might turn into more.

“I hope to make a full recovery. I’m praying, we’ve got a lot of prayers,” he admitted, before thanking first responders for coming to his aid.

“Moments like this actually do other things for you because I’ve always appreciated doctors and first responders and people who take care of us but when you wind up in a situation like this and they just took care of me and nursed me back to where I am. I am so forever grateful I want to kiss their hands and just thank them for doing what they did.”

'Cake Boss' Star Buddy Valastro Impales His Hand During Bowling Accident

Buddy Valastro is on the mend, but still has a long way to go after suffering a major injury during a recent bowling tournament.

The 43-year-old Cake Boss star and owner of Carlo’s Bakery revealed the news to his fans on social media, which shows his hand wrapped up and elevated after the devastating accident.

“I was involved in a terrible accident a few days ago… 😔 What do you think of my new accessory?” he asked his fans on Instagram.

According to Buddy‘s rep, via People, the accident happened over the weekend while Buddy was spending some time with his family at home, which has a bowling alley.

“There was a malfunction with the bowling pinsetter, a common fix in the past, but it turned into a terrible accident,” the reps explained. “After trying to release the bowling pin from the cage mechanism, his right hand became lodged and compressed inside the unit. Unable to remove his hand, he can see a 1-1/2″ metal rod slowly and repeatedly impale his hand three times between his ring finger and middle finger.”

Buddy‘s two sons, Buddy Jr. and Marco, had to use a reciprocating saw “to cut through the metal rod and relieve his father from the machine.”

After going to the hospital, Buddy went through two surgeries on his hand.

“It will be an uphill battle as it’s Buddy’s dominant right hand and he will need prolonged recovery and therapy,” his rep added about his recovery.
