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!

That was most dramatic, have also broken left arm & had sooooo many accidents involving my head when I was young that SS questioned my parents!

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 broke my thumb while I was swimming!

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......

KK - was never sure if it was dead when it fell out of the tree or it died as a result of hitting me on the head.

Sgt Wilson broke a couple of ribs last year after he tripped over the cat, or so he claims!

oh,..  when playing British Bulldog I broke a kids nose. I picked him up and was holding him face down.  I dropped him on his face..!

Sgt Wilson also has impressive entry and exit scars from being hit by a bamboo spear made and thrown by his twin brother!

Another Sgt Wilson classic - he went over the handlebars of his bike as a kid and broke both wrists so was late home for tea but his mum was in such as huff she wouldn't lissten to him and made him eat his tea with broken wrists. She still blushes now at the mention of the tale!

I caused my brother several visits to A&E too!! He has a couple of scars down his back from when I pushed him onto a briefcase (closure things stuck in his back!!!).

No wonder social services were worried!!
