On Tuesday, Bob Barker tripped and hit his head on the sidewalk while on a walk near his residence in El Lay and was taken to Cedar-Sinai hospital by ambulance. It’s said that the former Price Is Right host suffered a few deep cuts and banged up his knee but was still alert and conscious.
Luckily, local police officers witnessed the incident and were there to assist the 91-year-old following his fall. Phew!
One officer shared:
“Officers provided first aid on scene until paramedics arrived.”
Well done. Typically, we wouldn’t fret over a simple fall — but since the popular game show entertainer is getting up there in age, we had our concerns.
Nonetheless, it appears that the animal rights activist is doing just fine as his rep has confirmed he’s now home and resting:
“He works out every day and is disappointed that he’ll have to take a little break until he heals.”
Aww! Doesn’t a power walk with the Daytime Emmy winner sound fun??
We wish the TV personality nothing but the speediest of recoveries.
