In several places

My brother was snowboarding when he broke his leg in several places.

Question: I don’t understand “in several places” here means?
Several places of his leg?

Thank you!!!

His leg was broken in more than one place (location). Multiple places. It could mean a particular bone, like the femur (thigh bone) is broken in more than one place, or possibly you could have different bones in the leg broken (thigh bone and shin bone for example).
