Morgan Freeman’s Condition Post-Surgery
Oscar-winning actor, Morgan Freeman, is reported doing okay after his surgery from the accident’s injuries; a broken arm, broken elbow and minor shoulder damage.
As said on Tuesday by his publicist, Donna Lee, “Morgan is doing well after his surgery last night to reconnect nerves and repair damage in his left arm and hand. The surgery last night lasted four and a half hours. He’s visiting with family this morning. As of this morning he’s up and walking around and looking forward to his release in a few days”.
71-year-old Morgan is treated at Memphis’ Regional Medical Center, and in recovering process. The ‘Wanted’ actor was involved in a car crash on Sunday, as we previously reported. He and a passenger, 48-year-old female named Demaris Meyer, were driving in a 1997 Nissan Maxima, on a dark stretch of rural Mississippi Delta highway in Tallahatchie County.
The car careened off the highway and flipped end-over-end before landing upright in a ditch. They were rescued from the car’s wreckage using a jaws-of-life machine, and then Freeman was airlifted about 90 miles to the Regional Medical Center.
A police spokesman, Sgt. Ben Williams said that the Mississippi Highway Patrol is still investigating the accident, but alcohol and drugs don’t appear to be a factor.
The actor who’s famous for his authoritative voice had won Academy Awards in 2004 for his role in “Million Dollar Baby”, directed by Clint Eastwood. And now he is working on another collaboration with Eastwood, “The Human Factor”, a film based on the 1995 Rugby World Cup. He also due to play former South African president Nelson Mandela.
May Freeman will soon be free from the hospital bed. Get well soon!
