Model Christie Brinkley injured herself and was hospitalized while on vacation in Turks and Caicos over the Easter holiday after trying to save a bird.
“We interrupt this holiday to take a little unplanned excursion to Miami for cat scans and stitches following an accident trying to save a bird,” the 61-year-old model wrote on her Instagram account, along with a picture of her cut up face. “My grateful heartfelt thanks go out to our wonderful Parrot Cay Family who got me to the boat and plane, and my friends in Miami who found my A Team at University of Miami Hospital led by Dr Askari and his professional caring and adorable team and to my bestie @artminster who spent her much needed and deserved holiday by my bedside .. I ca’t possibly thank you enough and I offer you a pain check .. I mean rain check! Lol! @artminster #grateful #thankful #itcouldhavebeenworse! #youneverknow #liveachday”
We hope Christie is feeling better and heals up quick!
