I recently came across this awful experience of a person suffering from osteoporosis who was struck and left for dead by a hit-and-run driver and left for dead in Northern Ireland. (http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/northern_ireland/6947499.stm).
Anne McQuitty's arm was shattered and ankle was broken, among other injuries, but she is fortunate to be alive after such a horrendous ordeal. It's a reminder of how those who have fragile bones are even more vulnerable when something like this happens. Let's hope they catch the perpetrator who did this (and cowardly left the scene), and that Mrs. McQuitty experiences as swift and complete a recovery as possible.
