A 17-year-old man is admitted as a trauma call. He was trying to break into a building and fell from a fence when climbing in. He overbalanced backwards and landed upside down on the top of his head. He had severe neck pain at the time of the injury and did not walk afterwards. Cervical spine X-rays are performed as part of the admitting investigations (Fig. 13.1).
