A Heart-Breaking Video – Gymnast Break Both Of Her Legs During A Landing

There’s nothing that can truly prepare someone for a devastating injury. And when you’re a competitive athlete? An unexpected accident can change the course of your entire career. For Samantha Cerio, an Auburn University gymnast, her Friday floor routine at the NCAA gymnastics regionals in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, went anything but planned.

The senior went for her first tumbling pass, attempting a handspring double front according to ESPN, landed awkwardly, and fell to the ground clutching both legs in pain. She was carried off the mat on a stretcher, and it was later revealed that she broke both of her legs and dislocated both knees. WARNING: The video footage is pretty gruesome.

On Sunday, Cerio gave us all the feels when she took to Instagram saying that Friday was her final night as a gymnast.

And despite the horrific ending to her career, she’s proud of how far she’s come and so, so thankful for the support she’s received from friends, family, and fans far and wide.
