Sally Obermeder’s daughter Annabelle, seven, is rushed to hospital with a head injury after being hit by a falling shelf in their Bondi home
TV presenter Sally Obermeder’s young daughter was rushed to Sydney’s children’s hospital on Wednesday night.
The seven-year-old required urgent medical attention after she was struck on the head by a fallen shelf in the family’s home.
Staying overnight at the hospital as doctors tended to Annabelle, the mother-of-two said the incident occurred while the youngster was cleaning her room.

Sally, 45, told her Instagram followers on Thursday: ‘We spent last night at the children’s hospital getting her head put back together after a shelf fell on her, when she slipped and pulled it down as she fell (while cleaning her room.)’
Finding humour in the unfortunate situation, the media personality added: ‘She (Annabelle) said to the doctor at the hospital ‘well I am NEVER cleaning my room EVER AGAIN’.’
She let her fans know Annabelle was recovering well with a few sweet selfies, captioning them: ‘So happy this little monkey is better.’

Sally’s daughter Annabelle was conceived via In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF) in January 2011, after several unsuccessful years of trying to conceive with husband Marcus.
Annabelle was born in October 2011, the same week Sally was diagnosed with stage-three breast cancer.
After 16 rounds of chemotherapy and two mastectomies in 2012, she was given the all clear from breast cancer.

The Daily Edition star desperately wanted to grow her family in the years that followed her cancer diagnosis, but doctors advised the couple that another natural pregnancy could cost her life.
The couple later welcomed their second child, daughter Elyssa, via a surrogate in the United States of America in December 2016.
Sally and husband Marcus, who wed in 2001, live in Bondi with their two daughters.
