Jimmy Fallon injures other hand

Jimmy Fallon had to be treated in hospital after injuring his right hand.

Just four months after the late night chat show host came close to having a finger on his left hand amputated following a freak accident at home, Jimmy injured his other hand while being honoured by Harvard University's Harvard Lampoon on Saturday (24.10.15).

Jimmy - who received the Elmer Award for Excellence in Humour - was treated at Massachusetts General Hospital before returning to continue the celebrations.

A source told PEOPLE: "Everything is totally fine. It was all part of the celebration in the street and some random girl knelt down in front of him abruptly as he was turning around and he tripped over her because he didn't see her.

"Jimmy went to the ground, and everybody asked if he was OK. He said he was fine."

Speaking previously about how he injured his left hand, Jimmy - who has two daughters with wife Nancy Juvonen - explained: "So basically what happened is, I tripped and fell in my kitchen on a braided rug that my wife loves and I can't wait to burn it to the ground. I tripped and fell and I caught my fall... I'm getting up and my finger is sideways.

"So I go, 'Oh my God, did I just break my finger? This is the lamest thing in the whole wide world. It completely looks fake. It looks like a cheap horror movie where you see a broken finger.

"Basically what it is is that my ring got caught on the countertop when I was going down and stuck there and pulled my finger off."
