    That was the million dollar question. My first though was there being some sort of penetrating injury. It wasn't till I saw the nature of the injury that I knew it wasn't. I had images of impalement in my mind. It wasn't until after surgery when she was calm enough to tell us it was on the jungle gym on the playground. She slipped on a ladder type climing thing with one leg on each side of a horizontal bar. Talking to all the doctors it seems this type of injury is more common than most would think with girls. Most people think groin injury and thing of guys.

    I didn't go off in the school because I didn't have all the information yet. We went to the school and took pictures of where she slipped and were waiting for the incident report from the school. That coupled with the blood evidence in my wifes car where my daughter was sitting and what my wife saw when she picked her up at school gave a good pictures of what happened.

    At school the nurse saw a slight amount of blood but not much. And it wasn't until my wife checked her out in the car that she saw all the blood before she got concerned. It looks like the wounds were slow to bleed and the teachers had her walk to the office which I assume tore things more. There was only a small amount on the seat in the car. Nothing like what I saw in the wheel chair and the coat she was sitting on. It looked like the wounds rapidly and progressivly got worse. It was a fluke accident.

    Well at least it was not gross negligence... Just another reminder of how fragile life can be and how quickly everything can change.
    Best wishes for your daughter's recovery.

    Outstanding response and write up ! This certainly hits home for me and my family of why we train, continue to optimize and to push the envelope to be the best for ourselves and especially our family. It's unfortunate this happened and when they do, we must rise and answer that call. Your post has the culmination of what SI has to offer, but also what you do with it afterwards. Thank you for sharing.

    Great job at restrait in so many ways at one time.

    I'm glad she's going to be ok.

    Good job, dad.

    Nicely done. I had a similar experience when my daughter broke her arm. I stopped and assessed the injury, stripped my shirt off and slung it to walk her into the house and as I came in I looked at the exwife and said we're going to the hospital, directed her to gather what I needed to splint the injury for transport, and off we went. Nobody panicked or freaked out though I almost punched the resident in the ER when I passed along the pertinent info on the injury and he asked my daughter "Where did your dad get his medical training" (and I was 100% correct on the injury and her condition).
