The fidget spinner has claimed its first official victim. Well, that statement may be a bit hyperbolic, but an Irish actress says she was concussed when a child lost control of his fidget spinner and it struck her in the head. Is such a thing even possible? There are certainly skeptics, but when you see the size of it, you’ll understand:

That’s a joke. That’s not the one that hit her in the head. According to the Irish Examiner, it was just a little fidget spinner. They offered the image at the top, but it may not be the one in question. It may well have been one like this:

Here are the real details. Ayoola Smart, the 22-year-old Irish actress,was shopping in Cork. She was standing in line “when a child standing nearby lost control of the gadget and she was struck behind one of her ears.”

The blow was traumatic. Smart was supposed to play Serena the Mermaid in Futureproof in Cork’s Midsummer Festival. Now she can’t. The concussion is just too much.

LIFE has a funny way of happening to you. Today I very unwilling had to pull out of the play #Futureproof due to a freak accident involving a #fidgetspinner and a small child. I'm so sad that I can't be a part of this magical journey with a brilliant cast and team, but I'm a firm believer in 'everything happens for a reason' and though I'm struggling to understand what that reason is at the minute, I'm sure it will present itself in due time. I had the most wonderful time while it lasted and now I just have to focus on getting better. Thank you to the Everyman team, my director Tom, my fantastic cast- I know you'll all smash this show and to @variousfrivolities for providing me with this very apt t-shirt… #whenlifegivesyoulemons

There are many reading this and asking if it is a joke. If this was the first of April, and not the first of June, your skepticism would be well warranted. Two weeks off becasue of a fidget spinner accident?
