Legendary Italian Actor Suffers Fractures in Switzerland
Los Angeles: Legendary Italian actor Sophia Loren, who recently celebrated her 89th birthday on September 20, underwent emergency surgery following a fall at her home in Switzerland. The incident occurred in her bathroom and resulted in multiple fractures, including a serious one in her femur, necessitating surgical intervention.
Successful Operation and Cautious Hope
A source close to Loren reported to The Hollywood Reporter that the surgery was successful, bringing a glimmer of “cautious optimism” regarding her recovery. However, it’s anticipated to be a lengthy road to rehabilitation. Throughout this challenging time, the actor’s sons, Carlo and Edoardo, are by her side at the hospital, providing support.
News of Loren’s fall emerged as she was poised to inaugurate a restaurant in the Italian city of Bari on September 26, marking the fourth establishment bearing her name. She was also scheduled to receive honorary citizenship from the city. Regrettably, due to the accident, all of her commitments for the foreseeable future have been canceled.
Loren’s most recent public appearance was at the Armani fashion show in Venice on September 2, during the 80th Venice Film Festival. The entertainment world and her fans wish her a speedy and complete recovery.
