Splash Star Nicole Eggert Rushed to Hospital After Botched Dive
Splash star Nicole Eggert has been hospitalized after a backwards move off of the high dive went awry, according to TMZ.
The 41-year-old former Baywatch star was apparently attempting a dive that involved several backflips when something went wrong.
Nicole ended up falling into the water back first, and she apparently hit the water's surface extremely hard.
EMTs immediately pulled her out of the pool, and she was taken to the hospital.
According to sources, Nicole didn't break anything, but she's getting tests done to make sure she didn't suffer any internal damage. Her kidneys are especially being closely examined.
Nicole started her career with a recurring role on Charles in Chargebefore starring on Baywatch in Seasons 3 and 4. She has since appeared on Boy Meets World and Celebrity Fit Club.
This is yet another sign that diving isn't always great for your health.Chelsea Lately star Chuy Bravo had to pull out of the competition due to a fractured heel suffered during diving practice, while Katherine Webb dropped out this week following a back injury.
We're wishing Nicole all the best as she continues to recover. Stay safe, Nicole!
