â†µNote the sequence of events after being hit: jello legs, instant shock, pain sets in, bleeding commences. This is usually not followed by walking off under your own power, so kudos to Martinez. He's tougher than us.
â†µHe was taken to a hospital immediately and is fine, having only suffered a concussion to go along with some swelling and bleeding. I'm only a scientist, not a doctor, but when someone gets hit in the forehead area and blood comes from their nose, that would seem to indict a more serious injury. Good to know that's not the case so I don't feel quite as bad watching the above video on repeat.â†µ
