Allison Langdon to undergo surgery after she was ‘badly’ injured while filming a stunt for the Today show

Today host Allison Langdon suffered a leg injury while hydrofoiling during a pre-recorded segment for the breakfast program on Queensland‘s Gold Coast on Thursday. 

It’s now understood the 41-year-old television presenter will undergo surgery on her injured knee, just days after her accident. 

According to the Daily Telegraph Allison will have the procedure done in Sydney and  will likely have to take a ‘lengthy break’ from her on-air duties.

The publication further claims that Channel Nine will most likely ‘foot the bill’ for Allison’s medical bills and rehabilitation. 

An unnamed reporter for another Network told the publication: ‘That segment would have been signed off by a producer and ultimately above them, the executive producer, so it does fall on them at the end of the day.’ 

Daily Mail Australia has reached out to Channel Nine for comment.

Allison was injured while hydrofoiling during a pre-recorded segment for the breakfast program on Queensland’s Gold Coast.

Explaining his colleague’s absence from the Today show on Friday, Karl confirmed Allison had been rushed to hospital after the accident.

‘She had a bit of an accident yesterday… she hurt herself really badly. She’s in hospital this morning,’ he said on Today.

‘After nearly an hour of incident-free filming of a segment about hydrofoiling, Ally fell awkwardly as she headed back to the marina at the end of the shoot,’ they said.

‘It was an unfortunate accident, and she was immediately taken to hospital.

‘Both Karl and Ally had looked forward to the experience, and both had a wonderful time.

‘They had a comprehensive safety induction, and a thorough run-through of all aspects of hydrofoiling.

‘As with every shoot, safety requirements, briefings and subsequent after-care, are strictly followed and prioritised.’
