Nicole Eggert denies severity of 'Splash' diving injuries

By Sarah Burbank-Douglas,

Splash competitor and former Baywatch actress Nicole Eggert has taken to Twitter to clear up reports that she was in a botched diving accident which left her hospitalized due to severe injuries.

“Thnx 4 all the love but I am not in the hospital nor was I in a diving accident. Just have swelling and bruising on my back and kidney's. xo,” she tweeted Friday.

“I went to see a Dr Thurs after I dive I did on wed's taping of Splash. I was not in the hospital. Media has gone wild with this!!!,” she added Saturday afternoon.

News of an alleged failed dive surfaced Friday. TMZ reported that Eggert was hospitalized after attempting a dive which required the actress to do multiple backflips before landing in the water. Eggert was said to have landed on her back during the taping and EMTs were forced to pull her from the water and take her to the nearest hospital where doctors monitored her kidneys before later releasing her.

Eggert has since been photographed out and about with her daughter in tow.
