Actress Tori Spelling, known for “Beverly Hills, 90210,” was treated in a hospital in the Los Angeles area after suffering severe burns in a Benihana restaurant, the U.K. publication The Daily Mail reports.
The incident reportedly took place on Easter Sunday, with the actress catching her heel as she was leaving the restaurant and falling backward onto a hot hibachi. She reportedly received a large burn on her right arm.
“According to eyewitnesses at Benihana’s Japanese Restaurant in Encino, California, Tori, hubby Dean McDermott, their kids, Liam, Stella, Hattie and Finn, and a few other guests, had enjoyed their Easter brunch, when Tori tripped and fell onto a hot Japanese style grill used to prepare food in front of customers,” the story reports.
She reportedly tried initially to treat the injury herself, but was later taken to the Grossman Burn Center at West Hills Hospital. After doctors warned her of the risk of infection and scarring, she underwent a skin graft, according to the report.
The 41-year-old star of the Lifetime reality show “True Tori” is said to be recuperating.
