Courteney Cox Broke Her Wrist On Vacation

Courteney Cox had a bad time of it during a recent trip to Cancun when she fell and busted her ass – and her wrist – and had to catch a private jet back to the US. Well, “had to” is an exaggeration, perhaps, but she did cut her crazy vacation short due to the severity of the injury and may need surgery to fix it.

From TMZ:

Our sources tell us … Courteney was chillin’ with friends south of the border when it happened. We’re told she somehow slipped and when she tried to break her fall, her wrist snapped. Doctors came to her hotel room and confirmed it was pretty bad.

So much so, the medicos put a cast on the busted limb — but Courtney wasn’t taking any chances and booked private jet to take her stateside ASAP … to get treated by her own physicians. It’s unclear if surgery will be necessary.

I feel Courteney’s pain on this one, literally. While I wasn’t on vacation, per se, I did bust my ass trying to buy some Lucozade in Iceland back in January and broke my ankle in two places, requiring surgery (my first ever!), a metal plate and 8 screws in my ankle. I was in a cast and non-weight bearing for six weeks and it was hell on earth.

Here’s to a swift recovery!
