Well I was right behind him when we left and when he started taking the turn, We have taken that turn plenty of times before , but yesterday it looked like there was some dust or dirt on it, looked like the bike slid and he went head on onto the wall. Beleive it or not though, luck was somewhat on his side, one of our friends that was riding with us, is a paramedic and just did what he had to do, made sure vital signs were good and kept constant communication with 911, I kept his head from moving ( we didnt want to take out his helmet till ambulance showed up) His breathing was real bad and he wasnt moving at all. I kept screaming his name so he can atleast wake up or something but it didnt happend. thank you guys for your concerns , I will you keep you guys posted

The worst thing about this also is that his family have not been informed either. They live in san antonio and his phone was destryoed in the wreck, so at the moment I am the contact for the hospital. It has just been a crazy ordeal.

So sorry to hear that, prayers for him, family and friends. If you find pieces of his phone see if you can get the sim card then you can call someone in the phone if you don't have any numbers. Is just a thought. Maybe at work they have emergency contact list.

<nod> not gonna rag ya on it, was jsut curious of the accuracy of the original post in the thread. 20mph can make a huge difference in impact and survivability.

Wish him best of luck in recovery.

Good luck to him, his friend, and his family. Keep your spirits up and hope for the best. Some head injuries that appear life ending can turn themselves around and grant him a second chance.

No , do any of you remember that kid that raced a silver BMW and crashed his white 350z and split the car in half? Well he was in a coma, had head trauma as well as other injuries, and he has recovered mentally quite well all things considering. He still cannot walk but he is going to rehab several times a week. He worked here at the time he was injured.

My relation to my statement is from a friend who was shot in the head point blank with a large caliber handgun and luckily made it through the ordeal and now leads a basically normal life once again.

Coming together with friends and family and keeping hope high can be a great security net for everyone affected by the accident and hopefully allow everyone to help him pull through the hard times to come regardless of the outcome.

wow, prayers out to him, his family and his friends. hope he pulls through.

ANYTHING can happen to ANYONE of you.....so before SOME of you type away about stupid speeding on streets....take your own advice. this is another prime example of live and learn. hope he lives and learns, and i hope the rest of you guys continue to live and learn from other's mistakes.
