Climbed out of my bedroom window at age of 11................

Broke right arm, left leg, cut chin open (big scar), smashed two lower front teeth & couple of bag ones in half.

Feet landed on the grass & head landed on concrete. Should be dead!!!

When playing football once, a bad challenge made me land on my hand and I heard a crack.  I thought (and so did the physio) that I had dislocated my finger, so he, (and one of the subs) took it in turns to try and yank it back into place.

After having no success, and then going to hospital the next day, it turns out that I had broken it in 4 places.  No doubt before the physio got hold of it, it was only broken in one!

I managed to break my hand in the middle of teaching a cricket lesson to 40 12/13 yr olds. I thought I was going to faint with the pain but kept it together and then as soon as I was able I went to the head's office and burst into tears!

My brother managed to knock himself out as a teenager by headbutting a wall - that was pretty dumb.

Knocked over by a car at the age of 6 (or so)! In a coma for 3 weeks!!!!!!! Injuries = 1 broken rib, how's that! Strangely enough........I remember waking up in the ambulance and then it was lights out. You know about those things called near death experiences. Weird sh*t that!

Gosh.. I have had a few..  broken left leg aged 3, broken right foot 3 times in the same place - once doing karate and twice playing rugby.  Other rugby injuries include broken ribs and wrist, dislocated shoulder and elbow.

I ended up in a coma when I was 7 too - my friend dropped me while giving me a piggy back

Had concusion several times since the piggy back incident - I headbutted the stage during a student beer festival (long story) and I got hit on the head walking home from work when a squirrel fell out of a tree!

I was swimming with a friend in a busy pool and I ducked behind him to let someone past just as he kicked and bent my thumb back so it touched my arm. Just felt floppy after but didn't hurt, until I got out of the water......
