What happened to Buddy Valastro?

In an Instagram post on Sept. 23, Buddy revealed that he had been in a major accident. 

“I was involved in a terrible accident a few days ago... [frown emoji]. What do you think of my new accessory?” he captioned a photo of himself lying in a hospital bed with his right arm in a cast.

Friends and fans immediately wished the famous cake decorator a speedy recovery, and were curious to know more about his accident. “Get better homie. You’re gonna need that hand,” fellow pastry chef Duff Goldman commented, while a fan simply wrote, “What happened?’

The injury happened while Buddy and his family were bowling at the alley in his New Jersey home. A rep for Buddy gave a little bit of insight regarding his tragic accident, saying, "There was a malfunction with the bowling pinsetter, a common fix in the past, but turned into a terrible accident.”

“After trying to release the bowling pin from the cage mechanism, his right hand became lodged and compressed inside the unit," Buddy’s rep added. “Unable to remove his hand, he can see a 1-1/2" metal rod slowly and repeatedly impale his hand three times between his ring finger and middle finger."

Valastro’s teenage sons, Buddy Jr. and Marco, sprang into action immediately and helped their dad by using saws to cut through the metal rods. 

“It just blew out half my hand,” he said. “I screamed and my sons came back. I have no idea what kept me calm. I thought I was going to faint. Something told me to stay calm, and I told my sons, ‘You gotta get me off this machine.'”
