In 1991, President Bush went tobogganing with Arnold Schwarzenegger at Camp David. Barbara Bush joined in the fun by riding down the hill in a saucer.
When it became clear that the First Lady was headed for a tree, the President's urgent call to "Bail out! Bail out!" went unheeded. Unfortunately, she hit the tree and broke her leg.
This 1991 New York Times story describes the incident.
