Weldon Breaks his Leg

I was watching Granite Flats, and at the end of the header they show an old playground merry-go-round.  It was upon a similar apparatus that my older brother broke his ankle, the first year we lived in Hyrum.  I was in second grade, and he was in fourth, so it would have been 1964, late autumn.
I wasn't there, but this is the story I was told.  He was playing on the merry-go-round with a group of children.  Some how he got pushed off and his leg got caught underneath the merry-go-round.  It twisted his leg and broke it at the ankle.  I was introduced after school as I saw him with a big cast on his leg. 
He was pretty popular with letting people write on his cast.  He also got lots of special attention.
