RoyFokker'sGhost: NSCB time....

We had a track & field program at my elementary school, with the shot put as the only thrown activity. You had to be in the Fourth grade to participate. A buddy of mine was the class clown and was goofing off near the bounds line. He got hit in the head with at 15 lbs shot. Blood everywhere. Serious brain damage, Thankfully, he had recovered somewhat by the time he was in his 30's. The kid that put the shot was really messed up about the whole thing; he was an early puberty type, about 5'6" and 175 in the 4th grade and a real 'gentle giant'. He never played in any sport after that.


Do you pick up many chicks with that story?

dark brew: I_C_Weener: bacongood: Your Average Witty Fark User: Story is incomplete. Was the thrower throwing outside the throwing area or was the deceased warming up in the the throwing area? Either way, this never should've happened.

He was hit in the hip. Really sounds like some sort of preexisting condition.

Sure.  Everyone has a hip.

This guy would have been safe

ChrisDe: Hit on the hip and it killed him?


Probably threw a clot.  Kind of interesting/sad that a 15-year-old would throw clots like that...you'd think a thrombosis would be more prevalent in older people with injuries like that.  *shrug*

And it's hip to be square.

CSB:

I was coaching track a few years ago and one of the girls took a throw during practice and one of the guys was paying no attention and took it squarely in the face. I go over to check on him, blood all over the place and he stands up grabs his nose and cracks it back into place then asks if he can keep practicing. I promptly sent him to the hospital.

Subby really raised the bar with that one. It should have the inside track for HOTY and leave all the other competitors in the dust.
