Heather Mills hospitalized in Austria
VIENNA (AP) - Heather Mills, Paul McCartney’s ex-wife, has left a hospital after receiving treatment for a shoulder injury she sustained during a skiing accident in Austria, an official said Thursday.
Mills crashed on the Moelltaler glacier Wednesday and was flown by helicopter to a hospital in the southern city of Lienz where she was diagnosed with a fractured right shoulder blade, hospital spokesman Alfred Fast said.
She is expected to make a full recovery and was released midmorning Thursday, he added. It was not immediately clear if she would stay in the Alpine republic or return to Britain.
Broadcaster ORF quoted Mills as saying that she crashed into a plastic pole that had turned as hard as steel due to the cold.
But she seemed to take it in stride.
“That’s skiing, you know,” ORF quoted her as saying.
