WHAT HAPPENED??!! A dirt bike rider (Dan) was speared through the leg while trail riding with mates through some of Australia's best single track in Victoria, Australia.
They were in a very remote area and had no choice to ride back. It was 3 hours before the rider was able to get medical attention.
Photo's were taken for insurance medical purposes. It was not known that the stick had gone in so far before removing it and even then there was no easy way to just cut it off.
Luckily the rider will be OK even though the injury was very serious. Get well soon Dan!
Com: Rogent :Yeah, you definitely don't want to pull out (bow chicka bow wooow ) when you are impaled by something such as that.
Yeah it's painful but it will stop you from bleeding out, pass out from shock.
Com: Spartan : you should have left that in. becuase when you suffer a puntcure wound the imapled object prevents bleeding.
what you should have done was gone back grabbed your aid kit if you had one and called an ambulance. and gone back to imobileze/secure the object.
granted if it would have taken awhile for an ambulance to reach you.
you could tell the dispatcher to meet you guys a designated pick up point.
