​Cake Boss Star Buddy Valastro Gets Hand Impaled In ‘Terrible Accident’

​Cake Boss Star Buddy Valastro Gets Hand Impaled In ‘Terrible Accident’

Buddy Valastro, celebrity baker and star of Cake Boss, has revealed he's been involved in a 'terrible accident' after his hand was impaled by a metal rod at his private bowling alley.

Valastro's hand got stuck in the bowling pinsetter - that's the machine that sets bowling pins in their original position - a representative for the star confirmed to Fox News.

His rep explained that a malfunction with the pinsetter caused Valastro's hand to become lodged and compressed inside the machine.

The spokesperson said: "Unable to remove his hand, he can see a 1 1/2 inch metal rod slowly and repeatedly impale his hand three times between his ring finger and middle finger."

More than five minutes passed and 43-year-old Valstro found he was still unable to remove his hand.

Eventually, his son cut him free from the machine using a reciprocating saw, which was used to slice through the metal rod.

After being rushed to Morristown Memorial hospital in New Jersey, Valastro underwent emergency surgery on Sunday to remove the impaled rod, the spokesperson said.
