Dancing With the Stars Pro Karina Smirnoff Injured in Rehearsal (VIDEO)

Whoa. Check out Dancing with the Stars pro, Karina Smirnoff being carted off to the hospital by EMTs after a rehearsal injury. She and her partner, Randy Couture were eliminated in week 3 of the competition, but the dancer still performs in group routines.

Via TMZ:

Karina Smirnoff went down so hard during a “Dancing With the Stars” rehearsal … she had to get lifted onto a stretcher and rushed to the hospital.

TMZ obtained video of EMTs whisking Smirnoff away after she bit it in practice … suffering knee and wrist injuries. Watch the video … Karina’s clearly in pain, and her wrist is already wrapped up in an ice pack.

Sources close to the show tell us x-rays show she didn’t fracture anything, but just in case … producers are scrambling to find a replacement. Karina’s already been voted out, but she still performs in each show.
