some of you guys might remember this... i made a thread about it when it happened..
i was doing dumbell presses. i had done a few sets, and i like to leave the dumbells sitting on either side of the bench after i move up or down in weight. well i finished up a set and dropped the dumbells off to the side, somehow or another my hand slipped under the dumbell as it was falling and the dumbell landed on top of one of the dumbells i had left to the side of the bench, crushing my left ring finger in between the falling dumbell and the one on the floor. at first i could feel any pain at all, but when i looked down at my finger i saw a tear all the way across the top of the finger, along the first knucle from the finger nailk. i pulled it back, and the whole tip of my finger pulled off from the bone. i went pale and light headed and just walked slowly up to the front desk in a daze. my buddy steve was working the desk, as he always ddoes, and i just showed him the finger and layed down on the couch. the dude called my parents for me and gave me some water.. i passed out in about 30 seconds.. then my parents came and took me to the hospital.. i ended up getting 15 stiches that night, then one week later had to have reconstructive surgery on the whole tip of my finger, the doctor had to give me a new nail bed.
