That is such an ignorant statement.
This bump on the head is not just a bump. The main concern is that Li Na could have suffered a concussion (I.e. injury to her brain). The danger is that if she did indeed suffer a concussion from the first fall, if she were to fall and sustain trauma to her neck or brain, this second concussion could potentially lead to sudden death.
