Tim Blackburn, 50, of Stockton-on-Tees, England, said he busted his right arm when he fell off a ladder in 2007 and doctors had to remove 4 inches of bone and attach a metal scaffold around the arm, The Sun reported Wednesday.
Blackburn said the arm was finally healed this month using a new ultrasound technique, but it snapped again the day after the final treatment when he tripped over Jackson, his 2-year-old Staffordshire bull terrier, and tumbled down the stairs.
"It snapped like a twig and the pain was excruciating. I couldn't believe I had done it again," Blackburn said. "If I didn't laugh about all of it, I'd cry."
Blackburn said he was once again awaiting surgery on the arm.
