Taking Back Sunday Singer

Leg CRUSHED By Falling Tree

3/5/2012 11:47 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Taking Back Sunday singer Adam Lazzara shattered his leg.
Taking Back Sunday
singer Adam Lazzara is lucky to be alive -- after a tree literally FELL on top of him this weekend ... shattering his leg.

A rep for the band tells TMZ, Adam was at a recording studio in rural Michigan Saturday ... and he decided to step outside for a cigarette. It was real windy, and we're told a tree collapsed on the singer out of nowhere, trapping him underneath.

The rest of the band ran outside when they heard his calls for help -- but couldn't lift the tree off him ... so they called 911, and the local fire department came and sawed the tree to pieces (below).

Once freed, we're told Adam was rushed to the hospital -- where doctors put a cast on his broken leg. According to the rep, Adam's expected to be in the cast for the next 4-6 weeks.

Smoking -- so bad for you it can break your leg.

Smoking kills... or almost kills in this case.

If all the doctors did was put a cast on the leg, I'm guessing it was neither "CRUSHED" nor "****tered."

It's clear that trees are mankind's greatest enemies. They must be stopped before it's too late.

Yeah, that sounds about right. I mean, he does look like a f*cking lumberjack.

That is graphic?? That's more like a boo boo than a crush injury. If it was a crush injury there would be a lot more serious things going on than simply a smashed up leg. He's one lucky person. Who the hell is he?

I used to love them..and I used to think Adam was hot.. He got fat and looks homeless with the beard. Not attractive, at all.

I don't know who he is, but am glad that his injury could be taken care of with just a cast. If it had been a crush type of injury, there would have been a need for vascular surgery and possibly even amputation. That cutie-pie should be very grateful, and I'm sure he is.
