Instead of dropping it I held onto it and hurt my back. I suffered a bulged disc that bothered me for about 4 years. I finally went back to therapy during that 4th year and followed the instructions for recovery and got rid of the pain and constant reminder of the injury.
My back is aching just thinking about that... I can't move my 56 by myself when it's empty!
