TV host Grylls hurt in Antarctic fall
British television host Bear Grylls was airlifted out of Antarctica after breaking his shoulder while filming a television documentary, the Mail on Sunday said.
The newspaper reported Grylls' insurance company had arranged for a private air ambulance to fly him to South Africa Saturday night for treatment of the compound fracture.
The newspaper said the evacuation was an adventure in itself that required flying into a frigid, high-altitude landing strip.
