OuchWarning when walking down streets. Watch out for falling roof slates. They hurt, hurt lots. Not only that but they can cause a large amount of blood to appear.
Yesterday as I just left the doctors surgery a roof slate fell off of a house on Portland Street and straight on to my head. Blood was everywhere, we run into the Sun Cafe where kind staff, volunteers and locals called for an ambulance and kept pressure on the wound.
The ambulance staff got me to A&E quickly, and after spending 1.5 hours waiting a doctor examined me. Turned out that the cut which was first expected to be about 1-2cm turned out to be 10, I needed nine stitches and have wrecked a t-shirt from the massive blood stain.
I was kept in overnight and got almost no sleep as between the nurse checking my blood pressure every hour an old lady kept shouting in her sleep.
In the morning I was allowed to leave, but have to return next week for a check-up.
