Lisa D'Amato is recovering from a freak accident that ended with her sustaining a broken nose and lacerations on her forehead, lips and chin, People reports.

The 32-year-old America's Next Top Model winner was injured while joking around at a hotel after she wrapped filming on indie film Cowboys and Indians. "We were just kind of monkeying around," D'Amato tells the magazine and explains that she had been doing a handstand against a crew member when they suddenly fell. She landed on her face, thereby crushing her nose, which was made worse once the crew member landed on top of her, scraping her face.  "It was a totally freak accident," she adds. "It wasn't like we were doing back flips off the balcony."
