Former “Baywatch” babe Nicole Eggert is the latest celebrity contestant to be injured on ABC’s diving contest “Splash.”

Eggert, 41, was attempting a complicated dive involving multiple back-flips off the high-dive Thursday, when the dive went wrong. Eggert ended up doing a back flop instead, making a hard, painful impact into the water.

According to TMZ, Eggert was pulled out of the “Splash” pool by EMTs and was taken to a nearby hospital for examination.

Luckily, the actress was not seriously injured and was released a few hours later after broken bones and any internal injuries were ruled out.
