Sports never fail to serve up some horrendous and gruesome injuries but nothing has shocked us as much as this injury a player suffered after he had his leg stomped on during a rugby match.
Ceri Davies, an international for Wales’ Deaf rugby team, suffered the injury while playing for Llandovery 2nds in against Carmarthen Druids near Cardiff.
“I was in an offside position but I was trapped and couldn’t move. They were stamping and stamping.
“I felt some pain in my leg and I limped off to the shower.”
Davies’ had to have both sides of his leg sliced open to relieve pressure and prevent internal bleeding after he suffered what is known as Compartment Syndrome. The conditions happens when bleeding or swelling within a group of muscles gets worse and worse before it starts to restrict the bloodflow.
