  1. I fell off the tracks of a large machine three years ago and sprained my ankle. All I could think of when I heard it pop like a breaking broom stick was: "This is going to hurt." After a few seconds of numbness, it did.

    Judging from the distance, and angle, I'm thinking he has more than a sprain.

  2. Ouch ouch ouch. I didn't think about the pain factor, kinda wrenched himself a bit.

  3. There's a television show that shows clips, with humorous commentary, of accidents and failed stunts. I find myself cringing more than laughing. On some, I'm amazed the individual is still alive.

  6. I think one of the most brutal falls was a young man that fell about 10 feet astide a railing.

  8. I don't remember a face plant, but then again, my vision became blurry when he straddled the rail.

    I had a bicycle accident when I was an adolescent that ended in a similar impact in the same place. I don't remember much except the five minutes of hoping I would eventually start breathing again. Afterwards, I had to use a wrench to return the handlebars to the original position.

  9. Jess, we've survived many a tangle as a child (that would likely kill us now).

  14. That was quite an elegant for a fall, kind of like some sort of an abstract dance.

  15. TMITS, it was a light hearted spring-like fall.
