A friend of mine who was a paramedic likes to share the really gruesome stories with us.
He told us about the time they were called to a high school football practice where a player's crotch had impacted another player's helmet with such force his protective cup had split, collapsed inward, grabbed a healthy bite of scrotum (Missed the testicles, fortunately, just got the loose skin) and partially popped back.
When they got there, the kid was breathing shallow and freaked out from pain and the fear he had just been neutered. Once they calmed him down and had a look at the injury, they realized they had to get the cup off as soon as possible.
Unfortunately, it was too close to the skin to cut with the tools they had and any attempt to pull it far enough away might have caused more damage. They ended up getting two Vice Grip pliers, carefully working them under the edges of the cup, one on either side of the split, locking them shut and using them as handles to bend the cup back inwards making the split widen back out. Once the split was wide enough, the skin slithered out and they lifted the cup away.
The bruises the kid was left with were horrific, but he actually got off lucky.
Aaaaand that's why I was on the high school swim team.
Although we had our fair share of injuries as well.. not to toot my own horn or anything but I'm a fast swimmer, or especially was back then. Anyway we were at State one time and during 200IM some poor guy from another school miscalculated his strokes during the backstroke getting ready for the flipturn and went bonk on the side, and the impact split his head open. I also heard of someone on the diving team who accidentally did a bellyflop and his stomach kind of exploded.. :(

I got hit on the ankle once with a slapshot. There's not much padding there. It hurt like hell and I still have really pronounced capillaries in that area from it. I wonder what this guy will have.
I'm more concerned with what he WON'T have.
My Honey witnessed a kid get snapped with a wet towel in the locker room. Split open his scrotum. Stuff fell out.
