We haven’t had any major injuries for a while. Dan came off his bike this week from a slippy drain cover at Mitchitson Road polo court during throwins…
A few quotes from the polo forum to get a flavour of what actually happened:
found myself just editing the League blog…. and news just in from Dr Chukk…
from Golden wheel:
“He slipped out on a muddy drain cover at mitch. Xd up bars and went down hard. We had to call for an ambulance. Vidal waited with him, but only so he could get on the gas! Dan was cool as could be.”
“Cheers everybody, and a massive thank you to everyone who helped me out last night. You are all lovely people.
The thumb is broken, got a cast on it and an appointment at the fracture clinic this morning. Bummer.
Disappointingly didn’t get any gas in the ambulance as he couldn’t find some kind of attachment for the canister, “good job you’re not in screaming agony” he quipped. Yes, I though, good job. I did get my heart rate tested which was in the 40’s which had them worried but then they just figured I was really fit, like some kind of superhero.”
“Just got back from the hospital where the nice men tied surgical tape round the end of my thumb to make a strap which one of the pulled full-on hard outwards along the length of my thumb whilst the other pushed it sideways into place, properly mauling it in. Nice. Seems to have done the job though. Thank Jesus for local anesthetic.”
“It’s the least I could do for such a fine chap.”
Heal up Dan.
