George Michael Releases From Hospital Two Weeks After Accident
Michael was airlifted from the scene of the accident on the M1 motorway in the UK. The singer reportedly fell from a Range Rover after trying to close the door while the vehicle he was a passenger in was in motion, a witness told the BBC.
The singer's official site informed fans yesterday about his release. The message said, "We can confirm that George Michael has been discharged from hospital and continues to rest and recuperate. He is well and thanks everyone for all the messages of support."
The witness to the accident, Katherine Fox, spoke with the BBC about what happened. Here is what she had to say, "I was driving in the third lane of the motorway and had to slam my brakes on and go between the third and fourth lane," She told BBC News. "At that point I looked back and saw a body lying in the road so I stopped my car because no-one except the car behind me had stopped."
She then explained Michael's injuries, "He had a deep cut above his left eyebrow which was really bleeding down his face into his teeth," she said.
"Even if I had known who it was, I probably wouldn't have recognised him," she added. "I spoke to him like he was a normal guy but he was totally shocked, I don't think he was in any state to talk." Read the BBC report here.
