Re: Re: String Popping…a record?

My harp teacher plays a lot of weddings. About a year ago, she was playing for a wedding and had a pedal rod break about 5 minutes before the processional. She played the Bridal March an octive higher and said no one seemed to notice.

Question: do harpists ever suffer eye injuries from strings popping? I’ve never heard much of anything about this…so I am assuming eye injuries not common.
