Why is this in the top news of CNN.com?


Seriously. It reminds me of a “Fox News Alert”- Oh dear, Yves falls and hits the news! He just tripped and fell people…He is fine.

Yves Saint Laurent falls in street

POSTED: 12:29 p.m. EDT, October 6, 2006

var clickExpire = “10/20/2006”;PARIS, France (Reuters) — Fashion recluse Yves Saint Laurent fell in a Paris street on Friday and lay motionless in the road for several minutes surrounded by aides until emergency services arrived to help him, video footage showed.

A spokeswoman at the Yves-Saint-Laurent Foundation said the 70-year-old designer was well and had returned home, denying rumors he was seriously ill.

“Monsieur Saint Laurent did not have a heart attack. He just missed the curb, dropping into his car, and he fell,” she said, declining to give her name.

“He’s fine and he did not go to the hospital.”

Footage shot by a passing cameraman showed Saint Laurent lying in the roadside behind a car. After a while emergency services arrived and the video was cut.

A spokesman for the emergency services declined to give any information.

The bespectacled Yves Saint Laurent, whose couture creations have fine art status on four continents, ruled the French fashion world from the age of 21 until his retirement in 2002.

His health is very fragile and he is rarely seen in public.
