ASUNCION (Reuters) - Steven Tyler, the lead singer of rock band Aerosmith, was taken to a hospital in Paraguay's capital on Tuesday after falling in his hotel bathroom, the country's largest newspaper ABC reported.

ABC said a relative of one of the newspaper's employees saw Tyler being brought into the hospital emergency room, adding officials did not respond to requests for comment.

A man who identified himself as Gustavo Perez, a bellboy at the Bourbon Hotel in Asuncion, told local radio that Tyler slipped when he was taking a shower and "had a nasty fall."

Perez said Tyler's face was bloody and he had lost several teeth.
