What is the worst playground injury you have witnessed?
Do you think it was avoidable?
Do you think this is a natural part of childhood that happens in every school?

When I was in Grade Four, my friends and I were having races at lunchtime. We were using a glass window to stop ourselves. My friend Jemima won this particular race, but... ran directly through the glass window. She stepped back and brushed the glass off her, bleeding from lots of different places. Then suddenly we all started screaming because a huge chunk of her arm was hanging off and  we could see her bone. Ugh. I can still see it in my mind now! She had to be rushed to hospital in an ambulance.

Yes, it was probably avoidable, but I guess kids aren't known for thinking ahead.

Yes. Even though I'm still quite horrified by this, I don't think it's all that out of the ordinary. Kids get hurt and you're not going to stop it happening.
