Manchester United midfielder Darren Fletcher was left unconscious when a toilet door fell on his head.

The Scotland international needed treatment in the Old Trafford dressing room after the Red Devils' Champions League victory over Lyon last week.
The 24-year-old required stitches in a head wound and a club insider told the Daily Record: "It happened half an hour after the end of the match. It looked very, very nasty.

"I saw blood pouring out and the medical staff had to treat him there and then.
"I know he got stitches. He looked pretty dazed and pretty shocked.
"You don't expect a door to just fall on you."
United qualified for the last eight with a 2-1 aggregate win."
The source added: "The dressing room was relaxed and happy after the match - it was a case of job done.
"It seems that there was something seriously wrong with the toilet door.
"I don't know if fittings had come loose or what - but when Darren went to open the door, it came away and clobbered him.
"It was a nasty wound but it could have been worse.
"The other players were looking about scratching their heads in disbelief but at least medical staff were right there on the spot."
Fletcher is not the first United player to suffer a bizarre mishap.
Former Old Trafford favourite David Beckham sustained a head graze after a flying boot, reported to have been kicked by an angry Sir Alex Ferguson, hit him in the face.
Other strange football injuries include Chelsea goalkeeper Dave Beasant who hurt his foot and had a spell on the sidelines after he let a salad cream bottle slip from his grasp.
Leeds star David Batty hurt his ankle after a toddler drove over it on a tricycle. And more recently Dundee striker Derek Lyle had to miss Saturday's 2-0 Scottish Cup defeat by Queen of the South after he fell through a coffee table and cut his stomach.
