you'd think motorsports is dangerous. after all, 2 people were killed separately in Las Vegas & here in Sepang just last week.
you'd think competitive rugby & football are dangerous, these being contact sports.
you think bungee-jumping is dangerous, since it is invariably listed as an exclusion in accident/travel insurance policies.
what about high-jump in school?
you'd never expect this to happen but it did. this 10 year-old boy jumped & landed on his outstretched hands. being right-handed, the impact was felt on this hand & it broke 2 bones. just goes to show that you don't need to participate in dangerous sports to be injured.
i should know. my son broke the same 2 bones playing goalkeeper in a football game with his friends earlier this year.
