It runs out of gas
the plane has engine failure
A bird hits the propeller
The plane hits a tree
The throb in his head
The pounding in his jaw
The twisting of his stomach
The cut on his chest
A bank robber shoot a policeman
His mother with a blond headed man
His father with another woman
His friend stealing a candy bar
Brian broke his collar bone while skate boarding.
Brian was hit in the nose with a baseball.
Brian had to get stitches around his eye where he was hit by a rock.
Brian drove his bike into a car and broke his ankle.

Because of the mosquitoes the backs of his hands were puffy and his eyes were almost swollen shut, and he saw everything through a narrow squint.
He raised himself and crawled out of the water, grunting with pain of movement.
