Australian music icon, Molly Meldrum.

Australian music icon and legend, Molly Meldrum, is in a critical condition after taking a 10ft fall from his Richmond home earlier this evening. 

It has been reported that Meldrum was attempting to hang christmas decorations when he slipped and tumbled down the large staircase. 

The 65 year-old has been put in an induced coma, as the hospital attempt to relieve pressure from the internal bleeding in his brain. He is also suffering from several broken ribs and other internal chest injuries.

Doctors are stating that the next 24 hours will be crucial to the beloved star, who  is well known to the global music world, and is a vital element to the Australian rock industry. 

All thoughts are with Molly at this point in time.
