Mercedes Masohn Injured During TriathlonBy
Be careful out there.
This weekend, Mercedes suffered a concussion, scrapes, and bruising while competing in the 2013 Nautica Malibu Triathlon. She and boyfriend David Denman were participating to raise money for the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. During the cycling portion of the race, Mercedes was sent over her handlebars after being cut off by a wild cyclist—who did not even stop to apologize.
Despite some rather painful-looking photos of the injuries on her WhoSay page, the "666 Park Avenue" actress is doing fine. She is in fact proving to be a tough character—these aren't the first she's sustained during this triathlon: She suffered an earlier scrape a few weeks ago during training.
Let this be a wake-up call for all cyclists, race-bound or not: Be mindful of your fellow riders, and if you clip someone, stop. Apologize and offer to help.
