Schwarzenegger breaks leg in skiing accident

SUN VALLEY, Idaho (AP) - It's a painful Christmas for
California's governor. Arnold Schwarzenegger has broken his leg.
A spokesman says he was skiing with his family Saturday in Sun
Valley, Idaho, when he fractured his right femur -- that's the
thigh bone.
An aide says Schwarzenegger will need surgery. But he will spend
the holiday at his home in the ski resort town before returning to
Los Angeles for the operation.
It's the governor's second accident this year. In January, he
needed 15 stitches to repair his cut lip after colliding with a car
while riding his Harley-Davidson motorcycle in Los Angeles.
