A hiker had to be carried out of Zeland Hut earlier this week due to a broken hip.

The cause of the accident?

He feel out of a bunk!

I'd heard that he hurt himself earlier hiking, stayed at the hut hoping it would get better, then hurt himself again. Didn't know he fell out of the bunk. Zealand hut isn't too bad of a carryout. Not like some of them

I read this article, and two more that I found. None mention a broken hip, or falling out of a bunk.

At least they didnít have to get helicoptered out like this doctor in NZ who also fell off a bunk. Found this while searching for the article.

In written English it is customary to capitalize the first letter of each sentence as well as the first letter of proper nouns such as the word English. Additionally the use of sentence fragments is frowned upon. :rolleyes:

I don't think c'mon is a proper contraction either.

I don't think c'mon is a proper contraction either. I would say it is a common contraction. It is not standard English, but this is not formal writing.

With a broken hip, or any serious injury, I would imagine that pride has left the equation, and embarrassment is the last thing a person would be worried about.

No, 63 years old. I heard the story from a local who was familiar with the incident and what wasn't reported.

Sorry about my spelling, sometimes I don't see them until after I post. Guess I need to pony up a donation again so I can edit.

My useless super power is spotting spelling and grammar errors in that half second after I hit the post button.

I was just a few hours into my first hike when I slipped on a wet rock. As I was suspended in mid air with my feet over my head for a fraction of a second on the way to the ground, a whole train of thoughts we through my head. One of those was "I hope no one is around to see this. That would be embarrassing.".

Embarrassing or not, I'll bet it was a painful journey out with each jarring movement.

Clearly a collage education is advisable given professionals recognize this as the top 3,406th most dangerous activity one can engage in.

My only fall on my last section hike? On flat, easy trail, 10 feet from a busy highway crossing, next to a trailhead parking lot where a bunch of day hikers saw it happen. Looked up too early to start watching for a break in the traffic, tripped over the one root on the trail, and fell straight forward into a mud puddle.

A fall in mud? This short video is the king (or should I say queen) of all embarrassing falls.

Back in 2016 I was stepping down those small wooden footholds from the upper level of the Fontana Hilton and fell hard on my ass. Very lucky I didn't break anything...

For those of you that say "he just fell out of bed", I'll bet most on here don't realize that some of the huts have bunks built five high. A fall from the topmost bunk could be pretty severe. A 12 foot fall if you roll off in the middle of the night in an unheated, unlighted bunkroom. Just think about it.

Indeed. Not unreasonable if one is accustomed to sleeping in a bed 30"-34" off the floor getting out of bed and expecting the floor to be there for support. Then, suddenly it's not because you momentarily forgot where you were.

If I had been witnessing this in real time I would have predicted it. The girls could have used trekking poles or a found branch for a balancing staff or pole vault. A branch could have been used to determine the depth of the mud.

it makes one wonder though, how are all the differently abled hikers who have to use the wheelchair ramp to gain access to the hut supposed to get into the upper bunks? i smell a lawsuit.

Oh wow I hadn't thought of that and I can totally see it happening.
At work they mooved a trash can. I still sometimes throw trash on the floor where the trash can used to be.

Fragments. Good device. Must use more of them.

Is a sentence without a subject.

the proper fragment youre looking for is, i believe, "sentence without subject" the articles are usually extraneous as well.

It can be worse, like if you're accustomed to going to the bathroom while still half asleep, then, moving to a new environment with the bathroom located in a different place. Worse for men who stand up. That trash can could be mistaken for a urinal. :D

Ever descend steps expecting another step or two because that's what your accustomed and you hyper extend your leg when you actually are at the floor?

Ouch. No but once after recently changing barracks I went to my old room. I put my key in and opened the door. Only when I saw none of my stuff did I realize I went to my old room.

I probably shouldn't have but I tested a few other locks. I had been given a master key. I went to supply and exchanged the master for a regular key.
