Default Disaster on Skates Stories

What's the worst disaster/near-miss experience you've had on skates?

I was skating in the city, and while going around the opera house, I noticed a little set of wharfs, with concrete ramp leading down.

Or atleast, it /looked/ like concrete.

Half-way down, I realise that actually, it's wood. Wood painted to look black and cementy. Black painted, water slick wood. And that the wharf dosn't have a fence. A straight drop into the harbour. At night. In skates and jeans and pads.

I ended up throwing myself to the ground (Thank random fluctuations in the space time continuum for wrist pads) and crawling back up the ramp.
