See that sad face? That look is because Bono knows the haters are trying to kill him. How does he know? He knows because last week, the rear hatch of the plane flying him to from Dublin to Berlin ripped right the hell off — two suitcases took an unplanned skydive. Bono was okay, but somebody must be using some hella-strong mind-powers, because this past weekend, the singer had a horrific bicycle accident in Central Park.
Trying to avoid a crash with another rider, Bono had what’s being called a “high-energy bicycle accident” that left him with major injuries and required multiple surgeries. New York’s Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center detailed Bono’s treatment thusly:
Arm broken in six places, including his hand
Fractured shoulder blade (three places)
It sounds like he may have hit a tree? Surgeons worked on Bono’s bone repairs for over five hours Sunday, using three metal plates and eighteen screws. He had additional surgery (on his hand), Monday.
Though he’s expected to fully recover, doctors say Bono will require “will require intensive and progressive therapy.”
Hey haters, leave our Bono alone.
