1275 views and not one person giving any commiserations yet.

I know it won't make any real difference but just in case you read this i am gutted for you and hope it's a good break that heals quick.

That's one way of looking at it. Another way is that 1275 of us cared enough to look.

I read the story and identified totally with that moment where you know the leg hurts, but try weighting it thinking "It's OK really, it's got to be"--and it isn't. There's a bit in Touching The Void where Joe does exactly the same.

Get well soon, Shauna!

I must be getting old. I looked at that video and just thought "Why would you do that? Nasty sharp rocks underneath, horrible landing, and you are BOUND to come off".

She didn't. But I would. Obviously. Probably before the camera was switched on :-)

She's a bit rude to whoever shot that video and sent it to her: "a random guy", who "missed the first move", guess it's good enough "for now."
It's good bit of footage, and I'm sure at least a thank-you would have been welcome, even if you don't want to give him a shout out.

And the doctor too.

In reply to Flashman: well done, you've managed to add criticism to the thread in an awesomely pointless fashion.

I am certain Shauna will have shown her gratitude to the random guy and the doctor, she's nice like that.
