I've had a bad birthday or two in my time, but never anything like this:
Enjoying a relaxing 54th birthday in the yard, Mike Colwell went to move the sprinkler, backing up momentarily to avoid the spray, toward a horseshoe pit with a 1-inch-thick rusty steel stake.When the guy said he wanted a steak for dinner, I don't think this is what he had in mind, do you?
"My two heels hit the back wall of the pit. The next thing I know, this thing just tore through me," Colwell said.
As he fell on the stake, it pierced into his buttocks, fractured his pelvis, and came within a millimeter of his iliac artery, which carries blood to the body's lower extremities.
