Accident-prone model Christie Brinkley was attacked by a bird she was trying to save while she was on vacation. Details are sketchy, but at this point we know she approached a wounded animal in the wild. She's cute, but not bright.

We interrupt this holiday to take a little unplanned excursion to Miami for cat scans and stitches following an accident trying to save a bird. My grateful heartfelt thanks go out to our wonderful Parrot Cay Family who got me to the boat and plane, and my friends in Miami who found my A Team at University of Miami Hospital led by Dr Askari and his professional caring and adorable team and to my bestie @artminster who spent her much needed and deserved holiday by my bedside .. I ca't possibly thank you enough and I offer you a pain check .. I mean rain check! Lol! @artminster #grateful #thankful #itcouldhavebeenworse! #youneverknow #liveachday

What's this? Photos from better days? Well, okay, if I must.
