Macca badly injured - fund raiser 20-Jun-2020 At 6:01:03 PM Macciza
My recollection is almost of tumbling... I was kind of sideways to the cliff as I fell, my right knee is a bit dodgy so my mind recognised it was safe relatively speaking...
rather than angled. slab the rock had a number of mini- ledges... my left foot hit first I think turning it outwards an popped my ankle bone, the talus, completely out of position and slightly out of my skin... then right foot hit, damaging the end of the tibia, a Pilon fracture, and snapped my tib and fib which broke through the skin under initial force... somewhere amongst this , possibly as a result of a “quick, think of something” thought, I may have tried to push myself away , or maybe just somewhere in all this my wrist was broken...

Anyway my recollection is of almost tumbling, thanks will have to check with my mates and see what they recall ... basically I hit the rock before rope had come tight which can do all sorts of weird things to a breaking body...

Hope that made sense....
