camera falling on concrete - the worst.
DSLR falling on concrete. Even worse >_<
I'm sorry....I remember when I dropped my (then new) mark iii & 24-70 in the mud Still works though, years later!
edit to add...mine was on a strap! My black rapid, but I slipped (in mud) and it hit the ground as hard as my butt did :/
My wife let her daughter use her then new Nikon D7000 and she dropped it after I had pleaded with her to put the strap around her neck which she would not do. I noticed that there was a ding on the front edge of the lens, but on closer observation it was on the edge of the UV filter and not the lens itself. Happy ending.
I feel your pain. Did this last year:

My beloved Pentax *stDS was sitting on the console of the van, when my daughter spilled a coke on it.
Dried it off as quickly as I could. It ran for another two years before something gave out.
