So this is a video of a HUGE splinter being removed from some poor kids leg. Nothing gross, but the splinter is m**ZIT**ive and in two pieces. When it was being removed all I could think of was WTF and couldn’t help but wonder if the leg went back to normal. Did teach me to never slide on a wooden basketball court.
I watch all videos muted, so I cannot tell you anything about the sound/language. It was taken by a mother at the ER, so I am willing to bet that it is clean lol.

YT Description: “This is the ER footage from the Doctor’s cell phone, of my son Lukas (Duke) having a giant splinter removed from his left leg. He got the 5 1/2 inch splinter from sliding down a wooden basketball pole, trying to retreive his ball from the broken hoop. About 2 inches were sticking out of his leg, while the other 3 1/2” were under his skin! After about 45 minutes and plenty of numbing injections, Dr. Jornel Rivera carefully removed the splinter from my 9 year old’s leg. Had to go back 3 months later to have 7 tiny splinters surgically removed…
