Jennifer Connell says her life has been ‘very difficult’ since that day in March 2011, when she was at her nephew's eighth birthday party.

According to The NY Daily News, Connell had just arrived at her nephew Sean Tarala’s birthday party  when the 50-pound boy ran and jumped into her arms. The pair fell to the ground and Connell says she broke her wrist.
