Sweet merciful crap! I can’t even begin to imagine how painful that must be. Limbs are not supposed to bend that way unless you’re one of those extremely fortunate people made entirely of Silly Putty. Otherwise you’re in for a world of hurt if your leg gets wrenched to the point where it’s pointing straight up in the direction of your head.
This poor high school wrestler is also in for a lengthy and grueling rehabilitation once doctors can get that leg pointed back in the proper direction. Freak accidents happen in violent sports like wrestling, and that’s all that this is. A gruesome, nauseating freak accident.
Be warned, the video is not for the squeamish…
Ugh, it’s even worse when you see it in slow motion. And people used to laugh at me for choosing the Chess team over wrestling in high school. Taking a pawn in the eye is small potatoes compared to what we just watched.
