Muscular supermodel Fabio was at the Busch Gardens theme park in Williamsburg, Va., Tuesday to help show off the 73-m.p.h. Apollo’s Chariot roller coaster in a park promo billed as “Modern-Day ‘Adonis’ vs. Ancient-Day ‘Sun God.'” Early into the ride, however, a flying bird slammed into Fabio’s face, cutting his nose and sending blood streaking down his cheeks and chin. Several women sitting near him portraying goddesses were splattered with blood. Fabio was treated for a one-inch cut on the bridge of his nose and released from a hospital. “He’s fine, no serious injuries,” a park spokeswoman said. “I don’t know about the bird’s plight.”
