Miranda Cosgrove Remembers The 2011 Tous Bus Crash That Left A Mysterious Hole On Her Leg
Actress Miranda Cosgrove recalls her 2011 tour bus accident that resulted in her having to undergo surgery for a severe ankle break and later, a mysterious hole in her leg that not even the doctors could explain.
On an episode of the Hypochondriactor podcast hosted by actor Sean Hayes and Dr Priyanka Wali, the iCarly star shared that when she went in to have her cast removed, she discovered something amiss above her ankle.
“It was so strange, because when I woke up, I had a cast on, like a soft cast, and then later I went back and they removed it.”
“And then that’s when I noticed the hole. And I was asking questions like, ‘What’s this? What’s that?’ And then I was like, ‘Wait, why is there a hole in my leg?’ So they were like, ‘Oh, we didn’t do that.’”
Whether it was leftover from her surgery or not, nobody could say. She described it as looking like “somebody punctured through completely and cut a hole” in her leg.
Thankfully, its existence didn’t cause her any pain and would eventually scabbed over with no obvious sign it was a bizarre hole in the first place. But she does have a theory that could explain how it got there.
“The physical therapist told me sometimes they have to drain blood from your foot during the surgery, and that they have to put a hole to fix that. Does that make sense?”
