Sean Penn

Assistant Injures Herself

in Scary Slip and Fall

9/15/2011 1:27 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0915_welcome_penn_launchIt was Sean Penn to the rescue today... when his assistant fell down and seriously messed up her arm in the shower ... and the actor rushed her to urgent care.

Sources close to the actor tell TMZ... Penn's assistant was taking a shower at Sean's Malibu home when she fell ... and popped out her elbow.

Sean wrapped her up in a towel and took her to a nearby urgent care facility.

Sean and his girlfriend, Shannon Costello  were clearly upset over the accident as they waited while the assistant was being treated.

We're told doctors managed to pop the visibly damaged elbow back into place ... and now the assistant is recovering at her home.

Mark Wahlberg

Huge DISCOUNT On Bev Hills Mansion

Mark Wahlberg has knocked a cool $2 MILLION off the asking price on his UNBELIEVABLE Beverly Hills mansion ... asking $13.95 mil for one of the coolest pads EVER!!!

The place is UNREAL -- 8,932 square foot home sits on nearly 2 acres ... with a movie theater, 2-STORY GYM (complete with a boxing ring) ... basketball court and putting greens.

Like to sleep? It's got 7 bedrooms. 
Like to pee? It has 10.5 bathrooms.
Like to swim? It has a RIDICULOUS pool ... with a grotto!!!

Mark put the place up for sale back in 2008 for $15.9 mil ... but he took it off the market when he couldn't find a buyer.

Now, he's trying his luck again -- probably because he's building a new 33,000 square foot compound in nearby Beverly Park.

Hello? Why is she showering in his house? OR Why is he at her house, when she's showering? Yeah, my boss is always around when I'm showering.

in all honesty, it really looks like TMZ is using this photo they shot for a story. It looks like Sean was just caught scratching his forehead if you ask me. I don't think he's THAT upset. Think about it....

Maybe he's upset because his girlfriend found out that he's been messing around with his assistant on the side. Just a thought.

Dry up, Sean. It's a popped elbow, not a broken neck. Sheesh.

Sean Penn is a decent actor, but his politics suck. This article isnt newsworthy. Penn saw a camera and put on his sad face, that's all.

I really don't think this photo is much ado about a minor injury, as some posters think. This photo is a shot of an exausted and stressed man, as well as a responsible one. No one knows the reaction of his assistant had to being hurt and in pain. Has anyone had one of those days when "Murphy's Law" seems to be the order of the day?.....I know I have.....when just one more friggin thing has gone wrong when you could be racing against the clock for some reason or multi tasking, etc. He looks as though he could use a tranqulizer or a drink and a hot shower and a good night's sleep. No one really knows the all the preceding cir****tances that induced that kind of stress.

I've never really cared for S. Penn.....but doesn't the poor guy deserve some privacy as he's obviously grieving? This isn't really news we need to see............

Looks to me like he is tired and stressed and just happens to be scratching his forehead while dwelling on a long morning. It is so easy to twist pictures. Not sure I believe he is in anguish over a popped elbow.

I never comment on these things but SP is such a douchebag I couldn't let this one go. He's crying b/c he just got busted having his ASSistant taking a shower at his joint. His g/f is crying b/c she just busted him. You think all that drama is b/c of a dislocated elbow? Give me a freaking break

If an injury is severe and/or life-threatening, one is usually transported to a university hospital facility via ambulance or helicopter. Obviously, the more life-threatening (where the person is literally bleeding to death and/or in cardiac arrest), the more likely the person will be transported by helicopter. As for this article, you can thank yourself for allowing the corporate world to take over the media. This is not news; this is a form of perverted, morbid entertainment -- if you can call it entertainment. The Romans used to have arenas, where they watched humans and animals tearing each other apart. Just shows you how American society, its culture and people have devoloved.

Seriously people: there are some genuine caring people out there. You need to stop assuming it's because he's worried about being sued.
