    Calif. Gov. Schwarzenegger Breaks Leg in Skiing Accident in Idaho

    Fox news

    Sunday, December 24, 2006

    SUN VALLEY, Idaho California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger broke his leg while skiing with his family Saturday morning in Sun Valley, Idaho, a spokesman said.

    Schwarzenegger, 59, was taken to a hospital for X-rays and was discharged with a fracture to his right femur, said Adam Mendelsohn, the governor's Deputy Chief of Staff for Communications.

    He will have surgery to repair the bone when he returns to Los Angeles, Mendelsohn said. The governor remained at his Sun Valley home Saturday night and still planned to spend Christmas there.

    No one else was involved in the accident, Mendelsohn said.

    The fracture was the third medical problem the governor suffered in a year.

    He spent several hours at a University of California, Davis, hospital last December with a rapid heartbeat after coming down with a stomach flu. In January, Schwarzenegger needed 15 stitches to repair his cut lip after colliding with a car while riding his Harley-Davidson motorcycle in Los Angeles.

    The Sun Valley Resort, a favorite skiing destination for celebrities, includes a short ski trail named "Arnold's Run" after Schwarzenegger. The trail is categorized as a black diamond, or most difficult, for its challenging terrain.

    The name and level of difficulty of the trail the governor was skiing when his accident occurred were not released.
    As one who has fractured his femur I know that it can be very serious. The femur is the largest bone in the body and many bad things can happen with a fracture.

    My fracture led to three heart stoppages and a bilateral phemothorax from a Pulmonary Embolism.

    My prayers are with the Governor.
