Tori Spelling’s husband Dean McDermott is in the ICU at the hospital with a punctured lung after having a motorcycle accident. "He's in a lot of pain," Tori Spelling told People. "He's taking this as a sign and realizing family is too important to risk his life."
McDermott’s accident occurred on Tuesday while he was dirt bike riding with friends. He was taken to the ICU at an LA hospital right from the scene with a puncture wound, and was bleeding heavily on the right side. He is, however, expected to make a full recovery.
Tori said she didn’t realize the severity of the situation at first. She said, "His friend called me and said he was in the ER. He didn't want to scare me so he just said he had a crash and that they were X-raying him."
"At first I was mad," she said. "I was pissed that he was out biking and crashed. But when I showed up and saw him lying there, and they told me they were admitting him to ICU with a collapsed lung, my heart dropped. My biggest fear had come true."
Dean had a motorcycle accident earlier this year too, which left him with a fractured shoulder. But apparently this one really opened his eyes.
"When I first saw him he just softly said 'I'm so sorry,' " Spelling said. "I just held his hand and cried. That's when he said, 'I'll never do this again. You and the kids mean everything to me.' "
McDermott is expected to remain in intensive care a few more days. We’re so glad he’s ok! What a scary thing to go through!
