Messi accidentally breaks woman’s wrist with missed shot

If you go to any sporting event, from baseball to hockey to soccer, you can expect something to come flying into the crowd, whether it is a rogue ball or puck or a t-shirt from the cannon.

One woman found out just how aware you need to be when a rogue soccer ball kicked by superstar Lionel Messi came flying at her.

Messi’s shot went awry and flew over the goal and into the crowd, in the the trajectory of a woman sitting in the front row. The cameras panned over to her and she was grabbing her wrist in pain, mostly because it was broken.

This is certainly not how you want to spend a Sunday afternoon. Many will head out to a game when Barcelona and Messi come into town, but you certainly don’t want to leave and go to the emergency room with a broken wrist.

Hopefully she holds no grudge against the superstar and makes a full recovery.
