A woman from Lewes, Delaware, had her arm broken in a freak accident, after she took part in an all-women charity arm wrestling tournament at city's pub earlier this month

At first, Megan Weber, 31, of Lewes, beat her opponent - arm wrestling under the name “Sweet Treats” - at the Delaware Arm Wrestling Lady League event in Rehoboth Beach.

But when the two hooked up again, this time using their left hands, Sweet Treats broke Weber’s arm in an accident, the New York Daily News reported.

According to a video posted on the Delaware News Journal’s website, the two are seen in a deadlock for several seconds before Weber’s forearm snaps backward just above the elbow.

In the video the young physical therapist appears more stunned than injured, clutching the broken limb while her mouth hangs open.

The News Journal said she broke her left humerus, the bone running from shoulder to the elbow.

“Stuff like that, you never expect things like that to happen,” Weber, who wrestled under the name Rogue Scout, said.

“I was looking forward to a fun thing to do for a good cause,” she said. “It’s nobody’s fault. It’s just a freak thing that happened,” she added.
