Tough Break

Oh dear god, nightmare alert, nightmare alert. When Thea Maxfield fell from her horse she had no idea she’d snapped her neck until she went to stand up and her head stayed where it was. Ewh. Known as a “hangman’s break” Maxfield had to cup her hands around her head and then carry it  to  avoid being stomped to death by the now distressed horse.
