Alex Trebek injured chasing burglary suspect
Alex Trebek, host of the television game show “Jeopardy,” was injured early Wednesday as he chased a burglar in a San Francisco hotel.
The longtime game show host appeared on crutches later in the morning to host the National Geographic World Championship at Google Inc.’s Mountain View headquarters.
“What is, it happened at 2:30 a.m., chasing a burglar down the hallway of my San Francisco hotel when my Achilles tendon ruptured and I then fell on carpet, bruising the other leg in process. Surgery on Friday,” Trebek said, according to patch.com.
Wishing super-host Alex Trebek a speedy recovery. At 71, he is still spunky enough to chase villains down hallways in the middle of the night. Or at least he thought so right up until the tendon blew.
