One thing is, when he's fully recovered, which I trust will be the case before too long, any time he tells people about how "a tree fell on me while I was cleaning my car" it's liable to sound like he's telling them a joke...

A bit like the Graham Greene story about a boy whose father was killed by a pig falling on him from a balcony in Naples.
