Taking an unexpected spill into the river below, Ali Fedotowsky was taken to the hospital after a weekend (April 17) kayaking accident with fiance Roberto Martinez in La Jolla, CA.

The former "Bachelorette" star's rep told press, "Ali and Roberto had a little mishap when their kayak capsized this weekend. Ali was taken to the hospital and had 5 staples put in her head," adding that, "Roberto was fantastic-- he kept her calm and took great care of her. She is doing fine, and actually off to work this morning."

Ali took to her Twitter page earlier today (April 18) to personally say thanks to her followers for all the support, writing, "Thanks so much everyone for your concern. Big headache, but managed to hide staples w/hair part and I am back at work this morning."

Miss Fedotowsky also admitted that the fear of losing her locks was more daunting than anything else in the ordeal, jokingly saying, "I think I freaked out more when when the doctor cut my hair rather than when he put staples into my head. Lol. Very thankful to be ok :)"
