Hillary Clinton will bring home a most undesired souvenir from India – a fractured wrist.
The former Secretary of State injured her right hand on Tuesday, after slipping in a bathtub at the palace where she was staying in Jodhpur.
Doctors were called to the Umaid Bhawan Palace and diagnosed the 70-year-old with a sprain, advising her to rest which forced her to cancel plans to visit the Mehrangarh Fort that evening.
But the pain only worsened, and by Wednesday morning she decided to get her hand checked out at Goyal Hospital.
Doctors there administered a CT Scan and an X-ray of Clinton’s wrist, and determined that she had a hairline fracture, the Times of India reports.
They wrapped her wrist in a crepe bandage and advised her to rest further, and get a follow up in three days with doctors wherever she was staying.
Her doctors back in the U.S. agreed.
Clinton then cancelled the rest of her plans for the day, which included traveling to a village outside the city to see workers weave carpets.
It meant that Clinton didn’t get to do any of her planned itinerary in Jodhpur, as she was scheduled to leave for the next stop of her trip, Jaipur, on a chartered plane Thursday morning, according to DNA India.
This is the second time that Clinton has fallen on her tour of India.
