Belgian prince injured in skiing accidentFebruary 20, 2013 @ 6:10 am
BRUSSELS (AP) - Belgium's Prince Laurent was injured during a skiing holiday in Austria and remained under observation on Wednesday in a local hospital to monitor internal bruising.
The royal palace said that doctors want to make sure that there is no risk of bleeding from his injury, which is close to the liver. The palace said the accident happened on Tuesday afternoon in near Innsbruck in western Austria.
The 49-year-old prince is the third child of King Albert.
A year ago, Dutch Prince Friso, was left in a coma after being engulfed by an avalanche while skiing in Austria.
