Diaz rushed to hospital
13:30 11 March 2005
Cameron Diaz was rushed to hospital after knocking herself unconscious when she fell from a chest of drawers.
The sexy star was standing on the furniture trying to reach the top of a wardrobe, when she slipped.
Her singer boyfriend, Justin Timberlake, ran to their bedroom to find the blonde beauty passed out on the floor and bleeding badly from her head.
Worried Justin called an ambulance as he tried to revive her.
Paramedics at the scene at first thought the actress - who said she couldn't move - had broken her back.
The 32-year-old star was diagnosed in hospital with back strain and had to have 19 stitches to her head.
A friend is quoted by Britain's The Sun newspaper as saying: "Justin was frantic with worry. Cameron was out cold and covered in blood from her head. He was freaked out. He managed to bring her round but she couldn't move. He insisted on staying by her side in the ambulance.
"At first paramedics feared she had broken her back but fortunately it was just badly strained."
Cameron was packing away their camping equipment on top of the wardrobe as the pair had returned from a South African holiday earlier that day.
