Apparently, as Richards was exiting a hotel lobby, the person in front of her failed to hold open the large, heavy door through which they were walking. It came flying back at Richards and smashed into her toes, splitting the skin between two of them.
Although it might not sound like such a big deal, Richards reportedly needed over 20 stitches to close up the wound and was even in danger of losing a toe! Apparently, the care of a skilled doctor was all that kept her from having the appendage fully severed.
It just goes to show you that, even in a seemingly innocuous setting, disaster can strike your delicate feet—so it pays to have a good relationship with a skilled podiatrist. If you have any concerns about your toes, feet or ankles, schedule an appointment with Dr. Andrew Schneider for a comprehensive evaluation.
