I awoke at 5:30am today for a early morning film shoot with some fellow film students here for a current module project. I didn't realise it'd end up being a day I would nearly die through shock.

As a group all four of us went over to some woodland near the university to begin filming footage of a man (me) running very fast through the woodland enviroment (cue cool music and a man disturbing the environment smile). We had been filming for over two hours and then on one of the last shots before it got too light the following happened:

I was running like the wind through some brambles and a route had been planned so I could cross up onto a verge with a nice big stride. Once on the verge I would turn very quickly and run up along the track. Anyways, on the turn my ankle (injured last year) gave away and I took a rather mediocre fall onto the ground howling in pain.

My left kneecap had just come to collision with a corner of a huge concrete slab. The result was a shattered kneecap. I didn't get up for a few seconds and instead took too hugging the ground while screaming in pain. I didn't know what I had done but I couldnt feel my left lower leg. My film mates run over and are like 'this is serious, call an ambulance'.

I don't remember much else until at the hospital, but I've been told that I complained that I didn't need an ambulance and wanted to finish the filming. In the end I got a mate from back at uni to drive and pick me up and take me to uni because I didn't want to call out an ambulance for what I thought was a small injury. However, I do remember pulling up my left trouser leg and seeing a 'milk' like substance coming down from my knee.. pulling it further up revealed a gaping dent in my knee, and now blood pouring out.

The hospital was needed. Filming was very much finished.

I got to the hospital (by now in a state of delirious shock). My friends answered some of the questions as to who I was - All I wanted to do was get it seen too, get some painkillers and go to bed. I was very tired with no food or water and the injury.

Basically, I won't go into the details at the hospital. However, here is brief summary of it going from bad to worse to being on the edge of bye-bye.

-I fainted when they tried to disinfect my 'small cut'.
-They realised it was much worse than a 'small cut' and I'd chipped/shattered the left side of my kneecap.
-I then threw up as my kneecap swelled stupidly up.
-They released air from my above my kneecap with some kinda needles - the white 'milk' stuff was liquid from my kneecap sad
-They gave me an injection in my arm for some reason I forget. sad
-I lost all power in my body through the lowest blood pressure I'd ever had (and it's been very low before with a nose operation.).
-Apparently my blood pressure and heart beat was so low my body couldn't pump blood up to anything but vital organs so I was beginning to lose sight, something which seriously scared me. Luckily, resting and just not screaming or having them prod me seemed to help and feelings and movement restored a little, they also fed me lots of tea with loadsa sugar.
-All of these happened inbetween me screaming in agony and shaking violently through the shock of the intense pain.

I'm back in my uni room now. I won't be able to walk or move much for a whole week. I probably won't be running again for a few months. This probably tops my 'injuries list'. I really do get some bad eggs.

So guys and few girls. When you film. Check your running path, and if you've hurt your ankle before, don't rely on it :o
What a strange day, and it's only 4:35pm. I'm on a lot of painkillers and other randoms at the moment yet still it hurts.
I think 'special circumstances' will mean I don't have to complete the film with the group to hand in.

Peace. Out.
Joby

I'm not logged in, this is Bowie. Sounds horrible, can't imagine how you feel. Soooo, the question that will arise is, do you have any footage of the tumble? Sick, yeah, but aren't we all? Anyway, feel better, and make use of the time in bed with some good books, and even better software from CSB.

Answer to question = Your sick.
Real answer to question = Yes, there is a recording of the tumble where you can hear the connection of my knee and the concrete slab... it doesn't look all that impressive, but you can tell I'm in pain. I'll upload it within the next few days if I can bare to watch it again. smile

The camera was turned off soon after my first scream of pain by the way. The camerawomen (Ruth) didn't think it was nice to film me.

Thinking back I probably woulda screamed at her to stop filming, so I can't be angry! confused

I think the Uni's extenuating circumstance forms have a 'Knee Seeping Milk' clause in them, you will have to provide a sample of 'knee milk' for them to analyse in the lab. biggrin

Get better soon. Was it the woods up by the nursing college bit, I think they are cursed, bit too close to the cemetry for my liking???

I wanna watch it!

Sorry man...I feel your pain, or at least my mom does. She was run over my a tractor, and her foot smashed into the down postion. The bush hog (the case that encases the spining blades) is only about an 1 inch off the ground, her foot as smashed by that. She was in a case for.....a really long time, they said 3 years, but she healed sooner then that. Her foot missed the blades, but she ended up having a compound fracture.

P.S. She was pregnant, she delivered that baby 3 days later. OUCH! crazy

I smashed my finger with a big rock once. It's a little deformed now.

This is turning into a "Tell about your scars" topic.

Anyways, er-no, upload that movie. Someday, you'll look back on this and laugh, as long as you don't die from an unexpected horrendous infection.

I smashed my knee into a rock slab in the woods once too! And I also scraped a bunch of skin (about the area of half of your palm) off of the same knee a year earlier... I hate that knee...

Though all that happened was that it hurt (a lot) if I bent it for the next month.

anyway, hope you get well soon!

Could that injection in your arm have been a tetnaus shot or someother kind of anti-virus thingy?
Man, that must have hurt. I think the worst i ever had was either when i had to get stitches in my head, or maybe when i almost couldn't breathe... neither of which hurt much.

Yeah, I believe it was the tetnaus jab.

Wow, I'm a fully fledged cripple. I can hardly move at the moment. I hope I make a recovery so I can somehow run again. However I do believe I'll be left with a limp for the rest of my life. sad

Ooh that sounds nasty. My knees seeped milk before, it's a beech aint it. Still got the scars to this day.

I've taken a fall while filming as well, nothing as bad as yours though (quite frankly not much is.) I was running through some trees and jumped down this mound, carried on running, my left foot came down in the wrong place, so I moved my right foot to stabilize me, however there was a load of wet leaves there so I slipped, slammed against the floor and got a big stick plunged into my ankle, there's still a big scar there. It's hilarious footage especially as when we do the take again I'm a little shaken up by the fall so I run like a poof. Right funny. Watch it on a continuous loop we did.

Sorry it's just I can never resist a boasting about injury discussion, I hope everyone else is stronger than me and can resist the temptation to talk about all their knocks and falls and therefore keep this topic on track. smile

man that sucks.
ive actually broken my left arm really badly two times in about 2 yrs. first when i was playing soccer and me and this other kid were sprinting alon next to each other, he tripped me and i flew into the ground and my forearm broke, literally, in half. like right in the middle it bent upwards at a 30 degree angle or so. so a little over a year later, i was snowboarding and i crashed and broke it exactly as the first time. and just as bad. this time i had to have surgury to make sure it would heal right. and now i hv two metal plates around both my bones in there and a total of 13 screws holding them on.
get well, ttyl

My guess is that the "milk" was Synovial Fluid. It's held in little sacks to cushion ligaments, tendons, and bones in a joint. If you mess up your knee or elbow, you'll get that stuff seeping out.

Jeez! Don't any of you get it? Injuries mean hospital... hospital means NURSES!!! Getting hurt is bad but being attended to by beautiful, caring, young ladies (or men, if that rocks your particular boat) is great and well worth the pain!

You live in a DREAM world DUDE!

Seriously. I've got two nurses who check up on me every two days. They are smokers and just not what you are describing. Infact, one looks like a man. As for the nurses at the hospital.. well they just scared me while continuously saying 'sorry'! I was like 'Don't be sorry, it's your job!' (whilst howling like a wolf in pain).

Anyways, an update - been in bed since, which sucks. Tried to stand up about two hours ago and put a lil weight on my bad leg/knee... oh my.. it was like hundreds of tiny daggers stabbing into my kneecap.

Not doing that again for a while. Yet I know it's getting better, cos I'm typing without pain. (work that one out yourself) crazy

Peace. Out.

He he he, come to England and step in front of a car, then you will encounter our lovely English nurses. You will probably end up dying on a trolley in a hospital corridor in one of our underfunded and badly managed NHS hospitals, but it'll be worth it just for the nurses!

BTW - I'm not trying to make light of your situation, what happened to you sounds really painful and nasty, I hope you get well soon!

Oh, and HONK if you believe our nurses deserve better pay!

Left leg took all the damange (knee) - Listen carefully... its strange, because it trully is a lame fall compared to my usual ones. However, my knee just took the impact and cracked.

People in my halls uni make the impression/sound of a golfer putting a golfball - as that's what it sounds like.

I'll always check my runs.

Cheers for the comment on the advert Aculag smile

I have to agree with Schwar, that doesn't look too painful wink

However, judging by the fact that milk was seeping out, I'll assume it was biggrin

Yeah nice looking advert, you should make the falling clip part of the ad, at the end a title could come up.

Update on the knee if anyone is interested.

Been doing physio since the accident and I'm off to see a knee specialist soon. Did you know the knee is the most complex bone structure in the body and has 16 small different parts. I'm walking ok now, after over two months, and it starts to get quite sore after a while on it.

The specialist should tell me if I can ever play football again - or go kiting/swimming for that matter.

crazy - I suppose I'm glad I'm walking again, and the dent in my knee makes a cool pub story.

Thanks for the nice posts smile

Shot on an XL1 and XM2 - although we lost all the XL1's footage (and that was camera A). We then had to replan the advert and just use the footage shot on the XM2.

Was tricky, and we lost some really good shots - but I'm pleased with the final product smile
