Madonna was rushed to the hospital after falling off a horse while celebrating her 47th birthday
August 16 should be a happy day for pop star Madonna, who at that day turned 47. Unfortunately, she wasn't that happy. Celebrating her birthday, the singer unluckily fell off a horse while riding on her London-area estate that her husband, Guy Ritchie, rushed her to hospital.
As a result of the incident, Madonna broke her hand, collarbone and cracked three ribs. Thanks God, she hadn't punctured lung and was released from the hospital. Though, with such condition she would unlikely to be able to sing or dance in the near future because her fractured ribs will make breathing painful for at least six weeks.
