There will be battle over Ann-Margret's injuries

"I DON'T COOK. I don't sew. I don't have babies. I entertain. I'm an entertainer, and it really makes me feel like I'm doing something worthwhile."

Experts will fight about Ann-Margret's accident. Last week she fell from the a stage-elevator at the luxury casino Sahara in Tahoe, Nevada. and badly injured her face. She had several fractures in her face and head, she broke her arm, plus maybe the most serious injury, one of her knees were crushed.

The doctors' have high hopes of restoring her face and her leg. Her knee is a more serious matter. If she's really unlucky, she may never dance again. That will mean her career is over, and millions in lost wages.

"We have no comments about the accident", security officer for the Sahara, John Schott says. Investigators from the insurance company have been working around the clock every day since the accident. The result will be public in a few days.

Several newspapers have mentioned sabotage and people whispered around the casino, that it may have been the elevator in itself which staged the accident. Local police, however, have not bothered to investigate.

"The investigation is totally run by the insurance company's own people", sheriff John Ellmitt says to us. "We haven't found any reason to interfere".

But still, you have to ask yourself, how could the stage-elevator carrying Ann-Margret , faulter? Earlier on it had easily carried 3 stage-workers.

"Our investigation will be ready in the beginning of next week", the PR-department at the Sahara says. "Then we'll be able to mention further details concerning the accident".

From Los Angeles it's reported that Ann-Margret is feeling o.k. after the operations.

"But it will be a very long time before she will be back on stage again", one of her friends says. "Everything depends on if the doctors can fix her knee..."

Whatever happens to the knee of "The Animal", be sure people will fight over insurance money. In the American insurance world, we're talking millions, and Ann-Margret's lawyers will demand a huge sum for her damages. Especially if she'll never be back on stage, and her career is over.
