Well, Steven Tyler has done it again!
Earned another spot in our “Ailments of the Aging Rock Star” series.
This time, the Aerosmith frontman slipped in the shower in a hotel in Paraguay. The 63-year-old was taken to La Costa medical center in Paraguay’s capital, Asuncion. He received stitches to his face and had emergency dental work after breaking two teeth.
According to spokesperson Marcelo Antunez:
Mr. Tyler had a small accident that prevents him from staging the concert tonight….He is fine, he’s in his hotel but he’s not able to do the concert.
It is also reported that Tyler food poisoning may have played a role in the fall. Tyler was suffering gastrointestinal problems and may have been dehydrated prior to his fall.
In July 2009, Tyler fell off the stage during a concert at the famed Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. At that time, Tyler suffered minor head and neck injuries as well as a shoulder injury.
People can slip and fall on wet surfaces, be scalded by hot water, get electrocuted from appliances, drown in the tub or accidentally poison themselves with chemicals. There are about 200,000 bathroom accidents per year, nearly 70 percent of all home accidents!
Have you ever sustained an injury in the bathroom? What happened?
