Source – A UK woman who severely broke her leg during her bachelorette party is thanking her bridesmaid — who has no formal first-aid training — for her quick thinking that likely saved the limb in its entirety.
During her pre-marriage celebrations in Center Parcs, a series of vacation villages in Europe, 24-year-old Lula O’Neins says she tripped and broke both her tibia and fibula in one of her legs. The bones were broken in two places, causing her leg to be “bent out of shape,” SWNS reports.
O’Neins was eventually taken to Royal United Hospitals in Bath, Somerset, England, after reportedly waiting for an ambulance for six hours.
Emergency medical officials reportedly told the 24-year-old she would’ve likely had to have the leg amputated had it not been for her sister’s quick thinking, as “she would have lost the blood supply to the limb due to how badly broken it was,” SWNS reports. …
“We had a great time and I wasn’t even drunk when I tripped over and my leg just went ‘snap.’
“I couldn’t get up. I was in so much pain. My leg was bent back the wrong way. It was all in the wrong place,” she added.
“As we were waiting for it to show up, Gabrielle decided to push my leg back into place – thinking it might help, although she has no first aid training. It’s very lucky that she did,” she continued, adding she “screamed as [she] felt it pop.”
The groom didn’t ask for my advice, so I’ll offer it here. This is for all you guys thinking about possibly jumping the broom with your own beloved Miss Right: If at her bachelorette party, she is completely sober on a relaxing resort getaway and snaps her leg in two until the limb is twisted all in the wrong direction to the point one of her bridesmaids has to push it back into place and she has to lay in agony for six hours waiting for emergency surgery to save it? RUN.
I’m being totally serious. I might not be the best guy to come to for relationship advice since I’ve basically kept my marriage going for 25+ years by making sure we have at least two TVs and three bathrooms at all times. But I do know how to read the signs when the universe it telling you something. And this groom was given a loud, clear, unequivocal message that this bride he’s walking down the aisle with is trouble.
It’s one thing if she gets sick or twists and ankle or something. But getting your leg snapped all out of shape for no reason in the buildup to the wedding is some pure demonic possession shit. This isn’t a freak accident. It’s supernatural. Like something out of “Hereditary,” only much, much grosser. I’m all about “for better or worse,” but this is the worst of the worst. It’s Joe Theismann’s leg snap, but without Lawrence Taylor. And in a world with 3.5 billion females you could potentially make your wife, you don’t need this one in your life.
So take the hint and blow town. Change your name. Go roam the countryside, drifting from town to town anonymously if you have to. But escape that pain at all costs because your Creator is telling you in no uncertain terms this chick is going to be trouble.
