This happened on my 8th birthday. I didn’t get hurt at all; just got up and took off running again, but my mother tells me that there was a pregnant lady present in the room at the bottom of the stairs and she had such a shock that her water broke! So she went into labor and had her baby on that day because of me (supposedly)! 6 years ago
I use to live in Italy in this old castle on a student exchange. One rainy day on the way to class (which was in the former dungeon) I took the top step of the stone spiral a tad too quickly and slipped. The stairs were wet from all the other people traipsing up and down, in and out of the rain, and so I continued to fall, step by step on my butt. I have a spinal fusion with metal implants and I hit the bottom of my rods on every step, all the way down. I was really hurt and not anxious to repeat the situation.
Last year in England I was upstairs alone at a relative’s house, there was a knock at the door and as I turned on the stairs my foot slipped on the slick carpet. I went rolling down the stairs like Indiana Jones’ boulder and crashed into the wall. I made it to the door, limping and a little teary, and was more hurt that another relative, who was doing the knocking, didn’t even ask if I was okay or seem to care.
Hopefully I won’t have a third installment to this tale of clumsiness! 6 years ago
not really fell down, so much as skid down the outer inch on the heels finishing on the feet and then saying holy shit; I wish someone got that on tape. 6 years ago
I once fell down 3 flights of steps in a subway station in Madrid, Spain. I didn’t land on my feet. But both myself and my broom emerged relatively unscathed. 6 years ago
I was carrying an enormous, heavy, vintage sewing machine built into a table down a flight of steps. I couldn’t see where I was going and I slipped. I managed to fall down the entire flight of steps and land on my feet without hurting either myself or the sewing machine. (Kids: don’t try this at home.) 6 years ago
I’ve forgotten than I did this last year. It hurt, just like you’d expect… I’m not really sure what a flight is, but it was about 5 steps that I slid down, on accident. (Is sliding the same as falling?) I also managed to step over a step and mess up my ankle, and many, many years ago I tried sliding down about 50 steps on a piece of wood, that almost worked, but I slammed my leg into a metal pole near the end. Ouch… 7 years ago
Many years ago, I used to do this all the time. On purpose. For no reason other than to amuse myself and my friends. Basically, if there was a set of stairs, preferably carpeted, I would throw myself down them. I actually got pretty good at it, to where I could look like I was actually rolling down the stairs, but still managed to avoid getting hurt. But now I’m much older and the very thought of doing something like that makes me ache. But for a stupid kid, it was fun. But stupid. 7 years ago
I didn’t actually want to fall down a flight of steps, but it just so happened that I did. Yep, all 83 stairs I went down, crashing in a heap of twisted limbs and bones. But surprisingly, I wasn’t hurt. In fact, I got right back up, somewhat surprised, a little soreness in one thigh, but that’s all. No broken bones, torn ligaments, or damaged muscles. I say go for it! 7 years ago
