As we previously reported, Mika's sister Paloma suffered serious injuries after surviving a 50 foot fall. Mika took to his blog to update fans on her condition and thank everyone for their support.

He wrote:

On behalf of my whole family, we would like to thank everyone for their thoughts and kindness over the past week. Paloma is in a stable condition at the Royal London Hospital.

She has undergone extensive surgery to her legs and surgery to her abdomen. Although she is in a lot of pain, things are looking remarkably good considering what happened. Over the coming weeks Paloma will undergo more surgery and start her rehabilitation programme. Her recovery will be a long and difficult one but at this point in time there is no reason to believe that it won’t be a successful one.

Paloma and the whole family feel extremely lucky and we are eternally grateful to the Helicopter Response Unit, Doctors and Nurses of the Royal London for saving her life.

Every card, text message and bunch of flowers has been shown to Paloma. We are extremely grateful to you all for keeping Paloma in your thoughts and prayers.

So relieved that she's gonna be alright!

Mika's Sister In Critical But Stable Condition After 50 Foot Fall

Filed under: Music MinuteMikaSad Sad

mika sister in critical condition after 50 foot fall

This is truly terrible news. It's like something out of a nightmare!

Singer Mika's sister, Paloma Penniman, was reportedly sitting on her ledge three floors from the ground when she lost balance, fell, and was impaled with a railing spike, which entered her abdomen.

Here's what a close family friend had to say about it:

"To say he's traumatised by this doesn't even come close."

More from the friend:

"It's the stuff of nightmares. Paloma had surgery today on her abdomen and legs - but she is critically ill."

More:

"No one really knows what happened. One minute Paloma was sitting on the window-ledge, the next she had fallen on to the railings."

Here's what a Met spokesman had to say about the incident:

"Police were called to an address at 5.15 this morning, after reports a woman was impaled on railings after falling from a window."

More from a spokesman for Mika:

"Paloma had a serious accident. She is in a critical but stable state. The family have asked for privacy at this time."

We're glad to hear that she's stable. Our thoughts are with Paloma, Mika, and their family at this time.
