Injury at STCW Training

Last week about 1100 Tues the 5th, we were finishing up the last exercise of basic fire training. I was the third man on the hose. This was in what is called the "Hot Box", and when the fire was out the Instructor said; Lets move out of here.
Now it was hot in there and we were on our knees to stay low where it is fairy cooler then the approx 800 degrees near the top. Anyway those two younger guys jumped to their feet and the first man had shifted from 'Common sense' to Panic Mood and started moving back out before I was full erect. And the two of them bowled me over. My ankle rolled the wrong way when those two idiots landed on top of me. Two fractures in the ankle...
The lead Idiot didn't understand that that type of training centers don't want their students turned into crispy critters. Not Good PR.
Anyway he forgot all of his training and started moving before the rest of us was ready. The Young Idiotic Dumbkoff.
Now I'm out of action for about two and a half months. Surgry on the 27th to realign the bones in the Right ankle.
Dumb question answers:
Does it hurt? Hell Yes!!
Can you walk on it? Hell NO!
Does it hurt? Gesh! You asked me that already... YES IT HURTS!
My question: Does this hurt?
So come January I will be feeling alot better.... Something to look forward to anyway.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Oh crap - Boasun's gonna be cranky for the next couple of months. At least you'll have plenty of time to give your typical good advice around here!

Sorry about the injury dude. It's hard to come through unscathed having 500 lbs of stupid dropped on you.
