The guy fell landing on his back, neck and head. Now this guy had 2 seizures while i was taking care of him, waiting for the ambulance to get there. Luckily I am a firefighter/paramedic. s it stands now this kid is in the hospital, currently paralized from the neck down. I haven't heard but I would assume from what I saw he also may have a Brain bleed.

The point of all this is when you **** around at pick up or mens league you never know what may happen. If I am playing competitive hockey I assume some risk, remember people have lives outside of hockey.
People like that make me sick. I can't understand why people play like that in beer league. I hope that guy ends up being ok, that sounds horrible.
