  • My 20 year old son was smashed in the face by the broken plank that flipped up as he stood on it. He was extremely lucky not to loose any teeth or get a nail in his face or get concussion. This is URGENT. Looking at the previous report someone must have put the plank back but this is more dangerous than the hole since stepping on the loose plank is like that classic sketch of stepping on a rake head. He was unbelievably lucky, he has a sore mouth and split lip.
