Dancing with the Stars took a turn for the dramatic on Monday,
April 28, when one of the most celebrated contestants was injured during the
show. Paralympian snowboarder Amy Purdy, who is one of the

Purdy, who dances with DWTS heavyweight Derek Hough,
took to Twitter from her hospital bed to thank fans for their support and give
updates on her condition.

“Thanks for your support everyone!” she wrote.

we walked away from the judging table my upper back cracked and went into
spasms… in pain but I’m in good hands.”

Hough reportedly went to the hospital to be with his dancing partner, who
said she doesn’t know yet whether she will be able to compete next week.
“Fingers crossed,” she added. “We’ll know soon enough.”
