Talk about a vacation to remember!
Christie Brinkley took to her Instagram page this past weekend to share photos of a scary injury she sustained while trying to save a bird during a family visit to Turks and Caicos.
“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,” the 61-year-old star captioned a collage of images chronicling her misadventure.
Christie showed off her injuries on Monday, April 6, 2015.
“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,” she continued in the Monday, April 6 post.
Just a few hours after the incident, the mom-of-three posted another photo of her eldest daughter, Alexa Ray Joel, posing on the beach — proving the former model seems to be doing just fine after her accident!

“I may be CONCHED out lol, but My Little Moonbeam Alexa Ray glows in the Sunshine!” she captioned the photo.
Get well soon, Christie!
