Kendall revealed on her social media profiles that she suffered a freak accident on Sunday, March 19, while on a “doggie date.” It ended with her falling face first on a rod iron fence with a scary-looking pointed spire.

“1” closer, and I may have lost my eye,” she said in her post.

The anchor got 10 stitches on her brow and a visibly bruised eye. Luckily, she didn’t suffer a concussion.

Kendall was reportedly conscious in the immediate aftermath of the accident. She filmed a clip and took pictures after the first responders treated her. She also joked the worst part was traveling over potholes. Ouch!

Furthermore, her first responders look positive in the video, reassuring her followers. She was grateful to the first responders and hospital staff who tended to her.

The best part, Alix Kendall said, “I’m going to be fine.”
