Bono: incidente in bici


Dopo aver subito l’ennesima critica sull’operazione nuovo album (Taylor Hawkins dei Foo Fighters e il suo “suona come una scoreggia“), dopo aver tremato per l’incidente sull’aereo privato che lo stava portando a Berlino per i Bambi Awards, dopo aver preso parte all’edizione “30” di Band Aid, Bono viene “disarcionato” dalla bicicletta mentre pedalava per Central Park. La band è stata così costretta ad annullare la settimana di presenza prevista allo show di Jimmy Fallon. Sul sito ufficiale viene dato l’annuncio.

From Edge, Adam & Larry:

It looks like we will have to do our Tonight Show residency another time – we’re one man down. Bono has injured his arm in a cycling spill in Central Park and requires some surgery to repair it. We’re sure he’ll make a full recovery soon, so we’ll be back! Much thanks to Jimmy Fallon and everyone at the show for their understanding.


Diramato il bollettino medico ufficiale che riguarda le condizioni di Bono, coinvolto domenica scorsa in un incidente su due ruote con un altro ciclista mentre si trovava in Central Park a New York. Ecco il bollettino medico ufficiale:

On November 16th, Bono was involved in a high energy bicycle accident when he attempted to avoid another rider.  Presented as a Trauma Alert to New York Presbyterian/Weill Cornell’s Emergency Department, his Trauma Work-up at that time included multiple X-rays and CAT scans showed injuries that include:
1. Left facial fracture involving the orbit of his eye.
2. Left scapula (shoulder blade) fracture in three separate pieces.
3. Left compound distal humerus fracture where the bone of his humerus was driven though his skin and the bone was in six different pieces. He was taken emergently to the operating room for a five-hour surgery Sunday evening where the elbow was washed out and debrided, a nerve trapped in the break was moved and the bone was repaired with three metal plates and 18 screws.
4. One day later, he had surgery to his left hand to repair a fracture of his 5th metacarpal. He will require intensive and progressive therapy, however a full recovery is expected.
