What’s the ICD-10 Code for Struck a Duck?

A physician writes:
A long time patient came in.  He told me he was fishing, his pole started to twitch, he turned around quickly and tripped over a duck, injuring his hip!  Never before, in my 25 years of practice, has a patient presented to me w such a c/o.
CMS lists ICD-10 codes for struck by duck and bitten by duck but I can’t find a *&#! code for struck a duck!
icd-10-duck
