Jesse Metcalfe Falls 40 Ft. From Balcony And Is Hospitalized

This is terrible news! Jesse Metcalfe from Desperate Housewives is currently in the hospital! He fell 40 feet and hit his head after falling down steps at the afterparty of the World Music Awards in Monte Carlo. He didn’t suffer any broken bones, but was taken unconscious to the hospital where he was treated. Jesse is awaiting the results of an MRI scan after initial fears that he would have brain damage.

Jesse’s spokesperson told The Sun: “He is a very, very lucky man. The accident could have been fatal.

"I have just come from the hospital and he is baring up OK. He has not broken anything but can barely walk as he hasn't got much movement in his legs.”

"Midway through the aftershow party at Jimmy'z on Sunday night he headed back to his hotel to change out of his suit so he could be more comfortable. On his way back he slipped 40 ft and was knocked unconscious.

"He was immediately taken to a hospital in Monaco and given X-rays. Doctors didn't speak much English so as soon as we landed in London yesterday we had him re-examined at a London hospital.

"They wanted to keep him in overnight so he could have a MRI test today. Fingers cross he'll get the green light to get released tonight.

"Jesse knows he's had a very lucky escape."

The spokesperson added: "We are going to speak to the organisers of the World Music Awards as the pathway was very dangerous and we heard someone else tripped up as well. It is an issue that needs to be addressed."

Jesse was hosting the World Music Awards earlier in the evening. He’s expected to make a full recovery, and is currently receiving care at a hospital in London. Our thoughts are with him!
