Back in the early nineties, I was digging a new silage trench with an old TD9. I was finishing up as a thunderstorm approached and packing the left sidewall about three feet from the edge when the whole side wall collapsed under the right track. The tractor slide to the right and into the trench and rolled over. I tried to go over the back by grabbing the fuel cap and heaving, but didn't make it very far. When the loader hit the bottom, I was pinned under the tool box top in the dirt in the bottom of the pit from just above my knee to about the rib cage, and had a rock in the middle of my thigh kind of holding me tight. I tried to dig my way out with a pin that had fallen out of the hitch, and was getting close when SWMBO found me about fifteen minutes later. She called the fire company, who had me out and on a backboard in about ten minutes. Because aviation was down because of the storm, I was land transported to shock trauma at the U. of MD. hospital in Baltimore. I had a broken pelvis and tailbone, basically a walking fracture, but very painful. The next morning I was bruised from my neck down- just one BIG bruise, and they were really worried about a blood clot breaking loose, and kept me for a week. I was out of work for six months, and on light duty for six more after I went back. And even today, over twenty years later, I still feel the bruising and hurt every day and step. I've learned to live with it, and work thru it....
