FERGUSON said he planned to be on the air this morning.
FEDER wrote that, "FERGUSON, 49, said SUNDAY the accident happened on POWERS LAKE in WISCONSIN, just southeast of LAKE GENEVA, where he owns a vacation home. He described the scene as 'a complete inferno' when the WaveRunner exploded.
"[It] launched me 15 feet in the air, and I landed about 20 yards from the machine,” FERGUSON said. “I was scooped out of the water by a passing WaveRunner [and] ended up in the hospital all day SATURDAY. They thought they’d need a trauma team, but amazingly, I walked in with some nasty bruises and needed a few stitches. I had the battery of CAT scans, MRIs and X-rays. All were negative. They anticipated some facial reconstruction, but I got the all clear.”
