French gymnast, #SamirAitSaid SNAPS leg in HALF at #Rio games! [vid]

The Rio Summer Games are off to a GREAT start, but not far all.  French gymnast Samir Ait Said suffered a HORRENDOUS injury right before our EYES!!!

Said suffered one of the most gruesome injuries you’ll see at an Olympics or any other competition.
Said’s left leg snapped on his vault landing, the sound echoing through the arena. He crumpled to the floor and, as he clutched his leg at the knee, his foot and the lower half of his shin flopped to the left. As the crowd gasped, arena medical personnel immediately rushed to him.

Said was on the ground for several minutes as medical personnel worked to stabilize the leg. The crowd applauded as he was loaded onto a stretcher and taken out of the arena.

An Associated Reporter said the crack of Said’s bones breaking echoed through the arena and he was stretchered off by medical officials to a standing ovation. He showed further bravery by returning the cheers with a wave.

Let's hope he is ok...
