Nicole Eggert

HOSPITALIZED

After Botched High-Dive

0419-nicole-eggert-PCN_SplashANOTHER celebrity injury on the set of "Splash" -- TMZ has learned Nicole Eggert was hospitalized yesterday after bungling a high-dive and brutally back-flopping into the pool during a taping of the ABC show.

Sources tell us ... the "Baywatch" babe was trying to execute a dive that included multiple backflips ... but something went wrong, and she went crashing into the water back first ... hard.

We're told the impact looked so painful, on-site EMTs rushed in to pull the 41-year-old out of the pool ... and she went to a nearby hospital for treatment.

Sources tell us ... Eggert didn't break any bones, but docs wanted to make sure she didn't suffer internal injuries from the impact  -- they're monitoring her kidneys in particular.  Eggert was released from the hospital after a few hours.

It ain't the first time a star has fallen on the show -- Chuy Bravo 86'd himself from the competition after fracturing his heel during diving practice ... and Katherine Webb bowed out earlier this week thanks to a back injury.

Rory Bushfield had ruptured his eardrum during a dive gone wrong a few weeks ago ... but refused to quit the show.

A rep for Eggert had no comment.

Whoa, wait a minute. Didn't Chuy get his foot injury by attempting to jump onto a table? Regardless, an absolutely ridiculous show I'll never watch, EVER.

I hope she is ok. She was doing very well. Although I have watched the show, I do think it is far more dangerous than it's worth.

Someone is going to get seriously hurt. They are having people with absolutley no dive training perform dives that only people who have trained for years should be doing...just stupid...
