Jenny Mollen reveals she dropped her son, 5, and fractured his skull

Jenny Mollen and Jason Biggs’ 5-year-old son, Sid, is recovering from a scary accident.

“On Saturday evening, I dropped my son on his head causing him to fracture his skull and landing him in the ICU,” the actress, 39, wrote in a candid Instagram post on Wednesday, April 17. “I am forever grateful to Lenox hill downtown and @nyphospital for their immediate response and aid. Thank you to all of the nurses, neurologists, pediatricians, residents, cafeteria staff and brave women that keep the visitor’s bathrooms clean.”

Mollen joked that she did not expect her lengthy caption to turn “into an Oscars acceptance speech” before showing her appreciation for Biggs, 40, in the wake of the incident.

“@biggsjason Thank god for you! Thank god, thank god, thank god,” she wrote. “It has been a traumatic week but Sid is home now taking things slowly and recovering nicely. He is also eating a lot of chocolate dipped ice cream cones and plans to try cherry dipped soon.”

The Angel alum concluded her post with a message of comfort for others who have experienced similar mishaps: “My heart goes out to all parents who have or will ever find themselves in this kind of position. You are not alone.”
