0821-Graafseweg 219

Nijmegen, The Netherlands 19th July 2018 - Ambulance Just Outside ...

Friday 12 June at 9:20pm I was heading from the souterrain level to the ground level. In the hallway (1.60m wide) I slipped down. And as I am 1.75m long, I was trapped between the walls of the hallway. I felt immediately that there was a serious injury, as I could not move any more my back and legs. Pierre called the alarmnumber 112 and there arrived a small car with just one male nurse. When he could not get me on my feet, an ambulance was ordered. I was carried out via the garden gate, and moved to street level with the help of neighboring students. The report of the radiographer reads:

  • [1] Anterior wall fracture acetabulum R.;
  • [2] Fracture os pubis inferior R.;
  • [3] Fracture processus transversus L2 R.;
  • [4] Fracture costa 6 & 7 L.

The remaining part of the last three weeks is in the following video.

  1. We are very sorry to hear about your unfortunate accident at home Luke. It was good to hear that you were quickly attended to by medical personnel. I trust that your recovery is progressing favourably? Best wishes for a fast recovery from this mishap.


  2. Beste Luke,

    Wat een schrik dat je door zo’n ongelukkige val in de lappenmand bent terechtgekomen. Een ongeluk zit in een klein hoekje: dat heb jij helaas ervaren.
    Wij hopen voor jou op een spoedig herstel en geniet deze zomer van kleine dingen die wel mogelijk zijn samen met Pierre.

    Marjan en Hidde
