UPI News Service, 05/23/2006
"American Idol" host Ryan Seacrest fell through a glass table during a production meeting in Los Angeles and cut his hand.
The KIIS FM radio personality said on his morning show Tuesday he felt "like the biggest idiot" after the accident at the Kodak Theater, the site of Tuesday night's "American Idol" finale, "Entertainment Tonight" reported.
"I decide I'm 155 pounds, I can sit on that thing," he said, referring to the glass table. "So I sit on the glass and I'm sitting there for 2 1/2 minutes and I put my hand back to the middle of the table and all of a sudden this huge pop and I fall between the framing, into the middle, my legs up in the air in a pool of glass."
Paramedics treated him at the scene and no stitches were necessary.
"I am fine," he said. "The worst part wasn't the accident ... the problem was it set me 45 minutes off my schedule!"
