Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

Katie Hop­kins was rushed to hos­pi­tal af­ter she dis­lo­cated her shoul­der at a train sta­tion in London. The con­tro­ver­sial TV pre­sen­ter was treated with gas and air by paramedics af­ter she sus­tained the in­jury as she car­ried heavy lug­gage onto the plat­form at Padding­ton sta­tion and was swiftly taken to nearby St Mary’s hos­pi­tal in west London. Katie’s hus­band Mark Cross told the Sun­day Mir­ror: “This is a legacy from her years with epilepsy. “The staff at St Mary’s were bril­liant and man­aged to get her patched up in a cou­ple of hours.” The ex-Ap­pren­tice con­tes­tant, 42, was trav­el­ling to Heathrow to catch a plane to Los An­ge­les where she ap­peared as a guest speaker at the Politi­con con­fer­ence in Pasadena, which is tak­ing place this week­end. Mark added: “I’m pleased to say Katie, although in a great deal of pain and doped-up, still made her flight.” Katie was di­ag­nosed with epilepsy at the age of 19 and last year un­der­went brain surgery. Back in March, she re­vealed the surgery was a suc­cess but it “changed” her and epilepsy had left her with weak­ened shoul­ders. She wrote in her col­umn for the Mail yes­ter­day: “A brain tu­mor gave me four fits a night and seizures pow­er­ful enough to throw my shoul­ders from their sock­ets 43 times in 12 months. I got to know my lo­cal A&E night-shift staff pretty well. “There were never any guar­an­tees with the surgery - no one could say I would make it through, or make it back as me. “There were just per­cent­ages. The per­cent­age chance of not mak­ing it back? Less than ten. Per­cent­age of mak­ing it back with some dam­age to the left arm and left leg? Much higher. Per­cent­age of be­ing changed? Cer­tain.”
