Pain. The most intense pain i had ever felt, and hope to never feel again.
What had happened is that i had climbed up the tailgate of a trailer in order to see what was in it. It was later determined that the latch wasn't
fully locked, because the gate came open, slamming my head into the concrete driveway, busting the back of my head open like a watermelon. My right
foot had gotten trapped between the bumper and the tailgate, and my leg twisted, causing a green break (twisting fracture) from 1/2" above my knee to
1" below my hip.
Due to the extensive trauma to the back of my skull, the broken leg wasn't discovered till much later. I spent the next 9 months in a traction rig
and body cast.
I was 1 1/2 years old, and just learned how to climb.
