Dean McDermott Hospitalized After Dirt Bike Accident

dean-mcdermottReality television star Dean McDermott was rushed to the hospital after a dirt bike riding accident Thursday, July 1. He is currently being treated for punctured and collapsed lung in intensive care unit (ICU).

“He’s in a lot of pain,” Tori Spelling, McDermott’s wife told UPI.com. “He’s taking this as a sign and realizing family is too important to risk his life.” She added that she was actually mad at her husband at first because of another accident. However, she relented when she saw him at the hospital lying in pain. When she was told that he will be sent to the ICU, she said her heart dropped and that her biggest fear had come true.

McDermott apparently apologized to his wife and promised that he will never do it again saying his family is far more important to him. He is expected to recover fully but he has to stay in the ICU for a few more days.

McDermott, 43, was also in another motorbike accident earlier this year. He fractured his shoulder during that time.

The couple and their children, Liam Aaron, 3, and Stella, 2, star in the reality show Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood.
