Lea Salonga was injured in a skiing accident while on vacation in Hokkaido, Japan.
The legendary singer, who stayed rather chirpy for a woman who broke her tibia bone and now has to walk with crutches, shared the news through an Instagram update this morning, January 16. She said, "I am making this video from beautiful Hokkaido in Japan where my family and I are having a very fun skiing vacation. I'm making this video to let you know...I broke my leg on a slope."
She continued, "Clearly, I have not learned the art of stopping so I crashed pretty hard and I broke my tibia."
