Joan Baez, '60s Singer, Hurt in Treehouse Fall
WOODSIDE, Calif. (CBS/AP) The 1960s songbird Joan Baez is "resting comfortably" at an undisclosed location after falling 20 feet to the ground from a treehouse - a treehouse she purposely had built without walls because she wanted to sleep among real birds at her home in Woodside, Calif.
The 69-year-old singer and political activist was climbing down from the platform Wednesday when she fell. According to the San Jose Mercury News, Baez suffered minor injuries and was released after treatment at Stanford Hospital.
Nancy Lutzow runs Baez's production company and tells the Mercury News that Baez was resting Thursday at a secure location.
Baez is known for such songs as "Blowin in the Wind," "Forever Young," "Diamonds & Rust" and "Sweet Sir Gallahad," as well as once having a relationship with rocker - then a fellow folk singer - Bob Dylan.
