    About a year ago a good friend of mine who is a neonatologist was called to a labor room for an emergency; she was running down the hall and it was filled with people, sitting on the floor; as she was running through them someone streched out their legs and she fell, hard. Was able to go on to the delivery but was pretty sore for a few days.
