Cake Boss Star Buddy Valastro injured his hand
Valastro sent out a post on Instagram on September 23. The photo was snapped while he was in the hospital bed, and there was a cast on his right arm. The post had a caption that suggests a terrible accident. He jokingly also called the cast his new accessory.
Later, the man posted an Instagram story saying that he is getting the best possible treatment. The dessert king went through two surgeries to remove the rod. He is currently recovering at his residence.
As per reports, Buddy Valastro was trying to release the bowling pin from the cage. But his right hand was lodged inside, and it got compressed in the unit. The man was not able to move his hand or remove the metal rod. It impaled the hand three times between the middle finger and ring finger.
Within a few minutes, Buddy’s two sons, Macro of 13 and Buddy Jr. of 16, bravely helped their father remove the rod by using a saw to cut it out. The man is currently taking therapy and recovering from the unfortunate injury at his home.
