Teenager Breaks Both Legs And Hits His Testicles When Trying To Climb Stairs 15 Steps At A Time
The Internet meme went too far.
A 16-year old teenager has been rushed to the hospital after trying to climb stairs 15 steps at a time. He tried this at a shopping mall in California, where there were enough stairs to impress his friends.
“It was a bet. They would pay me $100 if I did it. So I had to do it”, said Junior Pound to our reporter Gary Cockburn who was at the hospital with him. He kept going: “I practiced at home with 5 and 7. I was pretty sure I would be able to double it, but I couldn’t”.
According to his friends, apparently he “stepped back” right at the moment of jumping, but decided to jump anyway. Due to this, he didn’t jump with enough force, and he fell with both legs open, hitting his testicles and breaking both legs.
He was unable to stand up and his friends had to take him to the hospital, with both legs open.
Doctors say he may take a full month to recover.
