    Can you share a few sentences of context before and after this one? – The Photon Jan 2 '20 at 3:42

    Yeah, context is important. It could mean a number of different things, depending on what the context of it was. – nick012000 Jan 2 '20 at 5:42

This could be a variant of an idiom meaning 'to laugh very much'. It is meant to express that the person saying it is laughing so hard they cannot control their legs, and have fallen.
