That's just a mild burtation.

Delay: Wow, that's not something a healthy person does at work. She has a medical problem.

She said it's happened before when she gets too cold or is at too high an altitude - and her sister has the same problem. I'm guessing it's a form of altitude sickness.  Good on her for being a trooper, and I hope she does as she said she will and gets herself checked out by a doc.

"I slipped and fell" is apparently her standby excuse.

No she doesn't. She locked her knees while standing in the same place for a long time. It happened to me when I was in the Army while standing in formation for a lime time while long winded Generals and politicians made speeches for about 3 hours. I was in the best shape of my life when that happened.  No medical problems.

Meh.  I got a bit woozy hiking up a mountain once and freaked out because I thought I had a heart attack or something.  The Doc said it was just altitude sickness and was mildly annoyed with me because her nurses dropped everything to do some kind of chest examine after I brought it up..

TheWhoppah: What does locking your knees have to do with anything?  That sounds like an old wives' tale.

It's not. I damn near passed out standing at attention in boot camp because of this. Some others actually did. They don't tell you not to lock your knees in boot camp. They probably should.

Had that happen to me in a wallyworld in 2011. Pickuping up a few things at a late lunch, got dizzy, cracked my head on the floor, woke up in an ambulance. Cost me 3 days in the hospital. Just got dizzy and lost consciousness. Toppled over on the floor, left blood everywhere. Hospital said it was "vertigo", but I know better. Wound up having a stroke in 2013, evidence of a previous stroke, in  2012. Hmmm...

wildcardjack: Maintaining balance on skis increases oxygen use, so she was close to passing out to begin with. Then she started talking so she maxed out VO ability while maintaining a calm breath.

I think she needs more cardio training.

And she needs to learn to not lock her knees.

She handled that really well. She also should stay away from the chairlift.
