Response to retrowire (Original post)

18. When I was working in the steel mill I had a 30000 pound coil, crane block and cables fall

about ten feet in front of me. The cables on the crane broke and down came the lift and all the cables raped around in front and back of me and I was not touched. I work out on a regular basis so when my leg got sore I just thought I sprained a muscle a little. I took a trip to the Hocking Hills in Ohio and walked several miles on backwoods trails. The next day my leg even hurt worse so I got an appointment to see the doctor. He took one look and told me to go to the hospital immediately I had a blood clot in my leg. Another time in the mill a hydraulic cylinder blew on a coil hoist and the 30000 pound or so coil on the hoist came right towards me somehow I jumped out of the way before it crushed me. Had a couple other close calls in the mill.
