LONDON (Reuters) - Television and film producer Jill Sinclair, wife of British record producer Trevor Horn, is in intensive care after an accident involving an air rifle, a spokesman for Horn's music company said on Monday.
Sinclair suffered serious arterial damage on Sunday when her 22-year-old son accidentally shot a pellet into her neck on the weekend at their Oxfordshire home. She is in a stable condition in hospital in Reading.
Sinclair was one of the founders, with Horn, of the ZTT record label, which scored hits in the 1980s with pop groups such as Frankie Goes To Hollywood and The Art of Noise.
Horn enjoyed his first hit in 1979 with Buggles and "Video Killed The Radio Star" and has more recently worked with Lisa Stansfield, the Sugababes and Seal.
Beware the fury of a patient man... John Dryden (1631 - 1700).
My family motto: 'Be what you appear to be'
Another 'don't worry it's not loaded' incident?
Hope she makes a full recovery
