Suffering acute pain in his arm after the fall, Lavrov was immediately taken to the Taksim Education and Research Hospital (Taksim Eğitim ve Araştırma Hastanesi) where he was diagnosed with a broken arm.
Sergey Lavrov supposedly suffered the slight accident yesterday after attending the council meeting at Dolmabahçe Palace during the day. Lavrov is stated to have suffered a fall from the stairs in his hotel and was succinctly admitted to the hospital. Lavrov was admitted to the orthopedics department at Taksim Hospital approximately 18:00 yesterday, where he had two x-rays taken of his arm. Doctor's detected a break in the bone and put Lavrov's left arm in a cast.
Supposedly, Lavrov was unable to wear his jacket due to the cast, therefore members of his security detail took the jacket to a tailor to have a custom-made zipper sewn in. Lavrov checked out of the hospital at around 18:40 after supposedly paying a bill totaling 113 liras. An embassy staff member remained at the hospital to tie up any remaining business.
NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen also took a tumble from his hotel stairs in Istanbul during his April 6th, 2009 trip to Turkey to attend an Alliance of Civilizations meeting and ended up injuring his shoulder.
