Ashley Judd 'Shattered' Her Leg In 'Catastrophic' Injury

Ashley Judd is recovering after a "catastrophic" injury "shattered" her leg. The actress and activist broke her tibia in multiple places while on a research trip to the Congo. Ashley reflected on the incident and its harrowing aftermath while in a South African ICU, telling New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof on Instagram Live that she tripped over a fallen tree while walking in the dark and was in agony for the next 55 hours until she was able to get proper medical care.

Big deal. Take a look around and see there are a lot more people out there suffering with bigger problems than you. Maybe a video of you helping them might be more interesting

What the heck was she doing there in the first place? What kind of "research" could this wack-o woman be doing? I don't want anyone to be hurt and I'm glad she's alright but she really has no business in the Congo walking in the dark with nothing more than a head lamp. She really is crazy.

Is breaking your leg falling over a log catastrophic?

She is almost unrecognizable, did she trip on a plastic surgeon?
How big a carbon footprint are you leaving with all these trips kitten???

When you trip over a tree limb, you do not suffer a catastrophic injury ; at the most, you get a cast. A catastrophic has to do with trauma, related to speed.....not tripping over a limb. Ever heard the expression " the difference between minor and major intervention is whether it is on you or not " . In this case, coming from her, it was likely minor. Just a broken leg......bone sticking out ? how fast was she running over that tree ????? the speed of sound ? why is it, she does not seem to have much credibility ? her history, maybe ?

That was a nassstttyy fall over a nasssssty tree. OUCH.
All these people feeling sorry for her obviously missed the part in this video where they talk about her privilege. Maybe it's her "white privilege" . . . what do you think about that "blm". . .Ashley Judd has "white privilege"

Everyone feels bad because she's a celebrity. If this happened to someone who was unknown and not famous, they would most likely have died or lost their leg. This world is fucked.

You knew about your privilege but you took the trip anyway. Why do these people do privileged thing and then feel sorry instead of just not using your privilege and be quiet

How come, when I fell and my femur broke, had to have a full hip replacement, I was not
in the news. Things happen, today Tiger Woods is in hospital, let us hope that he will recover.
I'm very familiar with the external fixator, broke my femur (compound fracture pierced my femoral artery),fractured my fibula and had a bone in my ankle come out my boot. I walk a little funny, but I can walk. I hope you completely recover. God Bless.

What kind of research was she conducting in Africa when everyone else, ie., the non-priviledged (black and white alike), are required to quarantine in their homes? Who was she chasing? ; (

No Harvey no work.
In my 20s, I travelled to some pretty remote areas. When you're young, fit and healthy, you don't always think about what would happen if you got sick or injured and the only way off the island is via a 3 hour boat ride to take you to the nearest village with exactly zero medical facilities. But you live and learn. Speedy recovery.
Matthew Caughey
Matthew Caughey:
Had this been a normal person in this situation then it’s a fair bet to say they would be in any one of these situations. Laying in an African Bush clinic with a stump where their leg used to be. with folks at home on go fund me, trying to come up with the money to evacuate them home. Laying in a South African hospital with their leg totally immobile unable to board a plane and forced to stay there till they heal enough to travel , or contract and die of super mutant covid. Or 3 denied medical transport by the insurance company and have to hobble your way onto a commercial flight.

So she posts that she would have died...and she would have lost a leg. Makes losing the leg kind of moot, don't ya' think.

Well I guess there’s hope for her... unlike many with COVID ... maybe stay in the US and not go trapping through he jungles or wherever she was and medical care would have been more readily available... no sympathy

She is an amazing human being and activist as well as actress. So screw all you haters. She is very grateful and I am positive she will pay it forward to all that helped her. This is who she is. So to all the haters poo poo on you and shame on you for being so hateful and nasty. There is no need for this crap. I am so thankful she will be ok and is alive. I am so grateful and thankful to all that helped her. She is a strong woman that has endured a great deal in life and she helps numerous people.
