Jimmy Fallon almost lost his finger after last month’s freak accident. Jimmy explained that after his crazy fall he was told he might have had to amputate his finger over a condition called, ‘ring avulsion.’ Good thing a specialist at Bellvue Hospital was able to patch him back up, but the late night talk show host did have to spend 10 days in the ICU.
“What a crazy break we had — a two week break.So basically what happened is, I tripped and fell in my kitchen on a braided rug that my wife loves and I can’t wait to burn it to the ground. I tripped and fell and I caught my fall… I’m getting up and my finger is sideways,” Jimmy said.
He added, “So I go, ‘Oh my god, did I just break my finger?'” the Saturday Night Live alum continued. “This is the lamest thing in the whole wide world. It completely looks fake. It looks like a cheap horror movie where you see a broken finger.”
