    Check out the pics.
    His idea was to ride down a park slide wih his roller blades on. It didn't work out to good.
    6 hours later at the local hospital and now here we are.

    owchy. Um, did you help your son with this "stunt"??? Thats gotta hurt.
  5. You know that looks real painful! I've been lucky enough never to break anything, so have no idea how much it really hurts!

    So, once he heals, will he feel the pain of being grounded for bein' stoopid????

    At least there's no bone poking through. That's gotta be a pretty shocking thing to see.

    I broke my arm in the same place on a half-pipe but it was just a hairline fracture and I was puking from the pain. The most painful thing I've ever felt. I can't imagine what your son was feeling like.
  14. Ouch! well i wish him a speedy recovery. Boy this brings back some painful memories.:(

    He'll be alright, live and learn.

    I know he'll live but I hope he learns.

    He pulled this one off all by himself.
    I was there but I missed it.
    The whole familly was at the park, and I turned away to talk to my daughter. One minute later a lady was coming up to me and saying "your son just broke his arm".

    TO COOL! You must be a very proud father. Get him some instructional aggressive rollerblading videos. Hes already got what it takes to go big, now you just have to refine his skills.
