Christie Brinkley: Hospital Visit For Stitches After Vacation Bird Rescue Goes Wrong
Christie had been documenting her vacation on Instagram, before posting the shocking picture of a nasty black eye and some really gnarly looking stitches on her face on Apr.6. What happened to cause the face of CoverGirl to require an impromptu hospital visit? Details of the injury remain a mystery but we do know that it involved saving a bird.
“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,” Christie captioned the pictures. The modeling icon and her family were vacationing at Parrot Cay on the Turks and Caicos Islands, reports E!. Somehow, an accident involving a bird rescue took place and Christie needed to hop a jet over to Miami.

My grateful heartfelt thanks go out to our wonderful Parrot Cay Family who got me to the boat and plane, and my friends in Miami who found my A Team at University of Miami Hospital led by Dr Askari and his professional caring and adorable team and to my bestie @artminster who spent her much needed and deserved holiday by my bedside ..
