Re: worst injury you've ever heard of/seen

Was present when a sudden high breakfall went bad; guy ended up with neck fracture and mercifully no spinal cord damage.
Personal worst ruptured acl and medial meniscus tear when as nage I messed up and got rooted in aikiotoshi, so self torqued the knee closest to uke as I went for the sweep. The graft has held fine but the onset of post traumatic osteoarthtitis and chronic pain have been somewhat disabling.
