MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Supermodel Christie Brinkley was flown to the University of Miami Hospital for treatment after she was hurt while trying to rescue a bird while on vacation on a private island in the Turks and Caicos.

Brinkley posted several pictures on her Instagram account showing a swollen right eye and stitches.

“We interrupt this holiday to take a little unplanned excursion to Miami for cat scans and stitches following an accident trying to save a bird,” she wrote.

She also thanked the doctors or her “A team” at the hospital. A while later she posted more pictures showing her back on the island.
