Man lives after a horrible accident – level 3, A12
Just a normal ride on your superbike into the countryside, taking in the scenery, enjoying the experience with friends until you smash into the back of a turning vehicle and find yourself hurtling through the air as your bike disintegrates around you.
This was the incredible scene captured by the Santa Roughriders on one of their recent rides in South Carolina in the United States, with this man lucky to be alive following his high speed crash.
He was airlifted to hospital but amazingly came away from the smash with just a broken arm and leg.
Interesting words: take in (watch), hurtling (moving), Santa Roughrider (name of the group of riders), ride (journey), airlift (take by plane or helicopter when there is a dangerous situation).
