Lahore: Pakistani cricketer-turned politician Imran Khan, who was injured after he fell down from a "lifter" in Lahore on Tuesday, is in stable condition, his spokesman and party leaders said.
    
Khan, 60, and several of his bodyguards apparently lost their balance and fell several feet below.
    
Footage on television showed a dazed Khan, blood streaming from a wound on his head, being carried to a vehicle by several of his supporters. The supporters bundled Khan into the vehicle and drove him to Shaukat Khanum Hospital.
    
The extent of his injuries could not immediately be ascertained.
    
Former cricketer Abdul Qadir, who was present at the venue of the campaign meeting, said he had been told that Khan had sustained injuries to the front and back of the head.
    
He said the persons on the forklift had lost their balance when someone tried to climb on it from below.
    
Leaders of Khan's Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf party announced from the stage that he would return to address the meeting after being treated for his injuries.
