That is a very sad story, my legs hurt just from reading it.

Never jump.
and never fend with any body part between the boat and the dock/pilling.

My daughter got lucky three weeks ago docking in a cross wind during a squall. She escaped with bad bruise. I should have turned and gone back out to open water when we did not make it in in time before the storm hit, but everyone wanted to tie up quickly. We survived, not even a scratch....... on the boat.
