Merkel Injured Cross-Country Skiing
Via the NYT: German Leader Injured in Skiing Accident
Chancellor Angela Merkel has canceled most of her meetings for the next three weeks after doctors ordered her to rest in bed following a fall while cross-country skiing in Switzerland over the Christmas holiday, her spokesman said Monday.
She originally believed she had only been badly bruised after falling, but a doctor told her on Friday that she had probably suffered a pelvic fracture, Ms. Merkel’s spokesman, Steffen Seibert, told reporters.
That doesn’t sound like much fun.
And for some reason, I find the following amusing: “She fell while cross-country skiing,” Mr. Seibert said. “We do not believe she was going very fast.”
