Christie Brinkley Injured Trying to Save Bird

Supermodel Christie Brinkley was vacationing in Turks and Caicos over the weekend when she was injured while trying to rescue a bird. She suffered a black eye and a deep cut under her left eyebrow. “We interrupt this holiday to take a little unplanned excursion to Miami for cat scans and stitches following an accident trying to save a bird,” Brinkley, 61, posted on Instagram with photos of her injury. She traveled by boat and plane to be treated at the University of Miami Hospital. In response to Instagram comments, she later clarified, “THE bird did NOT do this to me!!!! I did this to myself trying to help the bird! The birds here are super sweet!!!” She explained she had to go to Miami so a cosmetic surgeon could treat her to “minimize scarring.” She later posted photos saying she was back at a Parrot Cay resort in Turks and Caicos, where she’s staying with her daughter, Alexa Ray Joel. — Read it at People
