A heavy, sharp piece of metal fell on me, almost cutting through my upper lip and a long deep cut to my right arm. I was quickly assessed at A&E, and my arm wound was treated within an hour or so. My lip needed to be treated by a plastic surgeon, who was very busy, so I was seen some time later, but they did an excellent job in aligning and joining up my lip, so that today it is hard to see where the cut was. I am most grateful for the treatment I received at A&E, especially to the plastic surgeon.
