Sir David Attenborough injured after being stabbed by ‘dangerous’ cactus
The Independent says Sir David Attenborough was left injured after being stabbed by a cactus with needles like “glass” while on the set of his new documentary.
The 95-year-old broadcaster was filming for the BBC series The Green Planet when he faced off against the cholla cactus in California.
Describing the rare plant as an “active aggressor” coated in “spicules of glass”, Sir David approached the cactus and put his hand inside the plant.
Despite the layers of protection provided by thick gloves, he was left with a “painful” hand injury.
