Mayor Bloomberg’s Daughter Takes a Scary Spill


New York City mayor Mike Bloomberg is very concerned for his daughter's health. Georgina Bloomberg fell off her horse at the Syracuse Invitational Sporthorse Tournament on Friday. The 27-year-old's saddle slipped unexpectedly off her horse, named Radio City, in the Gambler's Choice class, a high-speed show jumping competition.

Georgina "was unconscious immediately following the fall and was also diagnosed with a fracture to her spine," said tournament spokesman Kenneth Kraus in a statement. "The complete medical report … will become more clear following an in-depth examination on Monday."

"The Mayor is very concerned, as any father would be," Mayor Bloomberg's spokesman, Stu Loeser, told People Sunday.

This is not the first fall for Georgina — in fact, she's broken her back, her collarbone, wrists, an ankle, and suffered several concussions! But this girl is one resilient equestrian. "She was still for a few moments and then got up with some help and walked out of the show ring on her own," says a horse show spectator who witnessed the accident. "Tough kid."
