On Wednesday afternoon, Chenoweth was rushed to Bellevue hospital in Manhattan following an accident on the set of “The Good Wife,” where she is filming an appearance on the show.
She was hit in the head by lighting equipment, TMZ reported the story online:
Someone on the set called 911 around 5:07 PM ET to report a woman who had been hit in the head by a scaffold.
TMZ spoke with a witness who was on the scene who says, “That area is a vortex for wind … and a big gust of wind blew the lighting off the scaffolding.”
The witness tells us Chenoweth was hit “square in the head” and appeared to be “knocked out cold.” The witness says, “I thought she was dead at first.”
Paramedics treated Kristin on the set … fitting her with a neck brace and putting her onto a stretcher. She was quickly taken away from the set in an FDNY ambulance and was admitted to a nearby hospital.
Thankfully this afternoon, TMZ reported that she had been released from the hospital and is recovering:
A rep for the actress released a statement saying, “Kristin has been released from the hospital and is home recovering. She thanks everyone for their prayers and well wishes.”
