Joan Baez 'resting comfortably' after falling from treehouse
Legendary 1960s singer/songwriter Joan Baez is reportedly "resting comfortably", according to her spokesperson, after falling 20 feet from a treehouse on Wednesday, reports The Associated Press.
The treehouse at her Woodside, California home was built without walls because she wanted to sleep among birds. The 69-year-old Baez was climbing down from the platform on Wednesday when she fell to the ground. Baez suffered minor injuries and was treated and released from Stanford Hospital.
Nancy Lutzow runs Baez's production company and tells the San Jose Mercury News, which first reported the incident, that Baez was resting Thursday at a secure location.
Baez is famous for such songs as "Blowin in the Wind," "Diamonds & Rust" and her rendition of the protest song "We Shall Overcome." The singer also once had a relationship with Bob Dylan.
