Paparazzo On Bike Crashes Into Nicole Kidman
While on her way back to her New York City hotel, actress Nicole Kidman was struck by a photographer on a bicycle and was shaken by the incident. INSIDE EDITION has the scoop.
It was a terrifying moment for Nicole Kidman on the streets of New York. The star was knocked to the ground by a photographer riding a bicycle, it happened just as Kidman was walking into the swanky Carlyle Hotel.
Kidman let out a scream and grabbed her ankle in pain.
The accident happened as Kidman was returning to her hotel after attending a Calvin Klein fashion show. That's when the photographer lost control of his bike and barreled right into her.
The 46-year-old Oscar-winner was helped up, wearing only one shoe and then managed to hobble into the hotel lobby. Witnesses said Kidman looked more shaken than hurt.
But she sounded understandably furious.
Kidman said, "I want to get his name and I want to press charges."
The 19-year-old photographer was identified as Carl Wu.
He said, "I’m so sorry. I'm so sorry. I’m so sorry. I tried to brake."
His fellow paparazzi seemed stunned by what they were witnessing.
One photographer said, “Carl just crashed into Nicole Kidman!"
The photographer was taken to the police precinct and issued summonses for riding a bike on the sidewalk and reckless endangerment.
Wu released a statement saying: "It all looks bad but an accident is an accident, this all went down very fast and I’m sorry it happened."
Later in the evening, Kidman hit the red carpet looking elegant as always. She told the Associated Press, "I’m up, I’m walking around, but I was shaken." You'd never know she'd just had a frightening run-in with a photographer.
