Amateur Wrestler's Legs Snap After Failed Top Rope Jump, Facing Double Amputation

Amateur Wrestler's Legs Snap After Failed Top Rope Jump, Facing Double Amputation

If you're squeamish, look away now - this one isn't for the faint-hearted.

This amateur wrestler may need his legs amputated after a horror injury saw both his knees snap.

Justin from Delaware in the United States was performing a wrestling move that involved jumping from the top rope when the stunt went completely wrong.

It's understood the bout hadn't even begun and Justin actually suffered the awful leg break during his initial entrance into the ring.

Seen making his way into the makeshift homemade ring, Justin then climbed onto the ropes and jumped backwards.

But just as he landed on the canvas deck, the immense pressure meant Justin's legs snapped underneath him as he collapsed in a heap.

The father-of-one and part-time amateur wrestler was rushed to hospital with doctors later confirming the worst - that one of his legs may need amputating.

It's understood Justin doesn't have health insurance and now faces around US$200,000 worth of medical bills.

His sister, Ashley, set up a GoFundMe page in a bid to help cover some of the hefty costs.

She wrote: "Justin jumped and spun from the second rope of the ring and when his feet hit the base of the structure, his knees bent backwards and both of his legs snapped!

"Since his injuries, Justin has had three surgeries with rods and pins put in his left leg with an additional surgery scheduled this week.

"Physicians are working hard to determine if amputation will be necessary.

"He'll ultimately be faced with a long road to recovery starting with a two week minimum hospital stay.

"Yes $200,000 seems incredibly steep, however the hospital stay, numerous surgeries, medical equipment, the countless months of physical therapy ahead, and even handicapping his home will far exceed this request.

"Though the internet has been a mixed bag of concern and distasteful cruelty, Justin has remained lighthearted in his situation. However, no amount of money will cover the emotional damage he will continue to endure through the aftermath of this horrible accident, so any offerings would help"
