An 'accidental' discovery

Brady Lind of Alexandria is your typical 9-year-old rough-and- tumble boy. He loves hockey and baseball and playing with his brothers Evan, 12, and Caleb, 7.


That's why his parents, Scott and Linda, weren't surprised when he ended up with a possible fracture in his elbow.

His first "bump" came while playing knee hockey with his brothers in the basement at the end of February. A couple days later, he fell on the same elbow during a hockey game.
