Madonna Rushed to Hospital After Riding Accident

Aug 16, 2005 | 3:03pm EDT

Madonna has been rushed to hospital after falling off a horse while celebrating her 47th birthday Aug. 16.

The singer broke her hand, collar bone and cracked three ribs in the accident which took place when she was celebrating her special day with husband Guy Ritchie and children Lourdes and Rocco.

However, fears Madonna had punctured lung were allayed when her spokesperson announced she will return home later tonight.

But Madonna is unlikely to be able to sing or dance in the near future because her fractured ribs will make breathing painful for at least six weeks.

The prolific chart-topper recently took up horse riding in a bid to get the most out of her country estate on England's Wiltshire-Devon border.
