Patty Duke hurt by horse

September 10, 2002

COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho (AP) - Patty Duke was reported in good condition after suffering a concussion and skull fracture earlier last week when she tried to apply fly spray to a horse in her barn.

The 55-year-old actress, who lives in northern Idaho with her husband, Michael Pearce, was transferred during the weekend from the Intensive Care Unit at the Kootenai Medical Center.

Sheriff's deputies quoted Pearce as saying that he left the barn as Duke was about to apply the spray to a horse in one of the stalls. Then he heard a thump, and the sound of his wife crying out.

When he got back inside the barn, Pearce told deputies he saw Duke on the floor of the stall.
