Mika - Mika's Bedside Vigil For Sister Over Christmas

Pop star MIKA spent the Christmas holidays in hospital keeping a bedside vigil for his sister, who is still recovering following a freak accident in October (10).
The Grace Kelly hitmaker's sibling, Paloma Penniman, fell 50 feet (15 metres) from a window at her home in Kensington, West London and landed on a metal rail.
Her legs were impaled on the rail's spikes, with one entering her abdomen. Firefighters cut her free and a helicopter response team flew her to the Royal London Hospital, where she has been ever since.
And Mika and his family ensured Penniman didn't miss out on the festivities by spending Christmas Day (25Dec10) at her bedside.
He tells Britain's Daily Star, "At the end of last year I was going back and forth between Paloma and the recording studio in America. Christmas was a bit different this year.
"We didn’t want to leave my sister on her own so all of my family were in hospital on Christmas Day and we have been with her every day over the holidays.
“We tried to make it all fun for her but it has been awful, such a shock, and we don’t know when she will be able to leave. It is still pretty serious.”
