    Could be a supracondylar humeral fracture?

    I agree with the others, looks like a humerus. For a definitive answer I'd ask in the med forum

    The femur does look much like the humerus, as they are both long bones - but as far as I can see from that very fuzzy x-ray picture, there is no patella (kneecap), which would indicate that this is not the knee.
