Lindsey Krueger

My name is Lindsey Krueger. I am going to tell you the story of what happened to me last summer. I was 9 years old at the time. I had the GREAT IDEA of climbing a tree that was growing out of a rock fence. I was about 20 feet up in the air when it happened. The branch broke and I fell. I hit the back of my head on a big rock.
