This is Adolphe Sax
When he was 2 years old, he fell out of a second-story window and fractured his skull.
When he was 6, he mistakenly drank boric acid.
When he was 9, he fell over a small cliff and broke his leg.
When he was 11, he contracted measles and was in a coma for nine days.
At the age of 14, he broke his arm when he caught it in a carriage door.
At 19, he was struck on the head by a falling brick.
When he was 23, he almost died from the effects of tainted wine.
When he was 29 years old, Adolphe Sax invented the saxophone.
Clearly, someone didn't want that saxophone to be invented.
