LOS ANGELES: Actress Zsa Zsa Gabor was in critical condition yesterday after undergoing hip replacement surgery earlier in the week.

Her husband Prince Frederic von Anhalt said Gabor, 93, had injuries to the right side of her body, including a broken hip, after she fell out of bed last weekend trying to get into a wheelchair at her Bel-Air home.

Gabor, a Hungarian-born sexpot of the 1950s and 1960s, has to use a wheelchair after being partially paralysed in a 2002 car accident.

The wheelchair's brake wasn't on and it moved away, causing the fall last weekend, her publicist John Blanchette said.
