SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Comedian Louie Anderson says he's been in pain all week from a recent diving mishap during a taping of the celebrity diving show "Splash."
The 400-plus-pound comedian was trying to do a flip from the 5-meter board when he slammed into the water, landing on his face and chest.
The American version of "Splash" has Olympic gold medalist Greg Louganis coaching a diverse cast of celebrities that includes Detroit Lions lineman Ndamukong Suh, 2012 Miss Alabama Katherine Webb, basketball great Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and former Baywatch star Nicole Eggert.
Anderson says he had no idea when he signed up if it'd be a hit, and figured he was either going to be inspirational or a laughingstock. He says he's lucky that some people think he's doing a good job.
