Ouch! GENERAL HOSPITAL star Anthony Montgomery (Andre) shared an X-ray of his broken finger and the scary story about how he was injured! “So last Sunday, this happened,” he wrote. “Short version: An ocean wave slammed me into the base of a house. True story.” But the long version is even worse!
Montgomery, who is known to Star Trek fans as ENTERPRISE's Ensign Travis Mayweather, was having fun on the beach with his nephew, his girlfriend and her youngest son. “We decided to explore a cave-like outcropping on the other side of a concrete base (and staircase we couldn’t see) of one of the houses on the water’s edge,” he explained. “Thought it was safe because we were there 10 minutes earlier. Waves smashed hard and faster and trapped us at the base of the house. My girl and nephew made it safely on the steps. The youngest and I took the brunt of the force.
“He was tossed a little, slightly sprained ankle and scratches,” the actor continued. “I escaped with a lot of scratches and this fun little reminder. My girl didn’t get a scratch on her (Thank God) and nephew just got a couple nicks. We’re alive, so we’re blessed.”
That sounds absolutely terrifying and we’re just glad everyone got out with only minor injuries at worst. But Montgomery isn’t the kind of guy to let an injury keep him down, and it shouldn’t affect his work on the soap because he was still able to go out celebrating with some of his GH family at an Emmys event celebrating daytime shortly after the accident. In fact, after learning of his injury, Lisa LoCicero (Olivia) marveled: “How’d you take our amazing group selfie?”
Montgomery needs to be more careful because this isn’t the first time he’s injured himself. In fact, in June of last year, he was receiving painful treatments on his knee for a torn meniscus!

We wish Montgomery a full recovery — and a speedy one!
