“My eyes were closed and they said I will be fine and they were cleaning my face and bandaging me up. I heard that familiar voice saying I’m going to be okay, a doctor is cleaning me up.”

She added, “After so many more questions and sticking gooey things in my mouth, giving me electrolytes, they lifted me up as I opened my eyes and set me back on that rock, that face looked so familiar again and I asked her again if I knew her or was she famous and the doctor said yes.”

The story continued, saying that the star then took her hair tie off and shook out her hair to make herself more easy to recognize. “Her sister the doctor asked me to guess and I told her I just hit my head, I can’t remember. She said, smiling, Family, and I said of course! I told her she was so beautiful.”
