Today host Allison Langdon reveals she’s finally home after undergoing knee surgery following her on-camera hydrofoiling accident

Today show host Allison Langdon has revealed she’s back home after having knee surgery following a hydrofoiling accident in Queensland two weeks ago.

The 41-year-old shared a photo to Instagram on Sunday of herself with her children, Mack, four and Scout, two.

‘So nice to get home to these two,’ she captioned the post.

In the picture, Allison sat on her bed and couldn’t wipe the smile off her face as she embraced her two young children.

Last week, Allison underwent surgery after seriously hurting her knee while filming a watersports segment for the Today show on the Gold Coast.

During a pre-recorded segment, the co-host ‘badly’ injured her leg while hydrofoiling – a relatively new watersport also known as foil surfing.

Balance is key on the board, and riders have to place more of their weight on their back leg.

Dramatic footage of the accident showed Ally being pulled from the water by her life vest by two male rescuers.

She was taken to hospital where she received treatment and flew back to Sydney on February 5 ahead of her operation.

In a statement to Daily Mail Australia, Channel Nine described what had happened as ‘an unfortunate accident’.

‘After nearly an hour of incident-free filming of a segment about hydrofoiling, Ally fell awkwardly as she headed back to the marina at the end of the shoot,’ they said.

‘It was an unfortunate accident, and she was immediately taken to hospital.

The statement added both Karl and Ally had a ‘comprehensive safety induction and a thorough run-through of all aspects of hydrofoiling.

‘As with every shoot, safety requirements, briefings and subsequent after-care, are strictly followed and prioritised.’

Post-accident: After she was brought back to the wharf, Allison was taken to hospital where she received treatment. She flew back to Sydney on Friday ahead of her operation
