Whats the worst injury accident you have seen at work, or at play for that matter.

I once saw a guy fall off some ladders and grab a metal partition which sliced his hands when he slid down it. To the bone it was frown

I saw what I "thought" was a bin bag being thrown in the air, turned out to be a young lad who'd been hit by a car as it was speeding the wrong way down a dual carriageway as I was travelling in the correct direction.

Blocking the traffic, telling people what to do, basically taking control, that's the easy part: sat in the middle of the road holding his hand telling him that everything is going to be fine whilst your shoes are covered in his "grey matter" and knowing that he has minutes left, that stays with you.

Thankfully nothing that bad, but this one guy I used to work with was a little accident prone. The amount of false ceilings he brought down with him when he kept falling off his step ladders.

I dropped a drill when i was standing on staging in fazakerly Hospital. I tried to catch it and it drilled through my palm. Because i was ''employed'' by the hospital they couldn't sort it and i was sent to Walton hospital

We used to stick pins in seats, so when fellow workmates sat down they'd sit on the pin. It went on for weeks, and people would throw their drink in the air when they sat, it never got boring.
I set one up for my mate and my boss came in and sat on it. He went ballistic.
