Celebrity FABIO'S NOSE HEALS By People Staff Published on March 26, 1999 12:00 AM Share Tweet Pin Email Fabio is resting at his Beverly Hills home after being smacked in the face by a goose while riding a roller coaster at Virginia’s Busch Gardens theme park. “I am grateful for all the cards and well wishes,” the muscular model said Thursday. Fabio was at the theme park Tuesday to help show off the Apollo’s Chariot roller coaster when, early into the inaugural ride, a bird slammed into his face. Fabio was treated for a one-inch cut on the bridge of his nose and released from a hospital. “I trust they will now install safety measures to make sure that this will not happen again,” Fabio said.
