I'm glad she's going to pull through. I couldn't imagine seeing my wife in that condition. Makes me tear up thinking about it.

Don't hesitate to PM me if I can help with something

Send a PM if you need anything, sorry to hear of the accident. You've most definitely opened at least my eyes on what to do in the situation and to be prepared. We might want to ask for a sticky on a preparedness thread for just such occurences. You've got my best wishes and hope.

I will be the first to admit I would be totally unprepared if I saw someone go down like this! Especially a close family member...Please share any knowledge you feel comfortable putting out there.


Good thoughts going out to you and your wife...Gives me chills just thinking of something like this..

I'm actually writing this from ICU waiting. Sorry if I ramble, I just need to let some out in hopes some of you might do better when it counts.

So I'm standing there & the sounds were kind of far off & time wasn't quite right. It wasn't just a riding buddy, but my wife & I couldn't wrap my head around & make sense of the moment. WHAT THE DO I DO??? I've been riding for a decade. I've cornerworked a hundred races & track days. I've wrecked my share of bikes. I work on bikes for a living.........but I still couldn't answer that question. Some waste of life ****ing looser that's been living out of his 75 pinto station wagon had just pulled a left right between us & she buried her bike into his passenger door.

When I got to her side she was unconscious & she had blood coming out of her mouth & nose. She was lying on her stomach in a unnatural looking pose. My first reaction was "dont move her". So I tried to reach down & hold her hand only to find her arm shattered. I'm starting to lose my calm when she starts to choke on all the blood. I go frantically looking for a knife to get her helmet off. I saw through the strap only to realize later that I cut it in the wrong place. Over other people's objections, I'm determined I'm going to take her helmet off. I tell myself I'd rather have her paralyzed than watch her suffocate in front of me. I know the proper technique to remove a helmet and avoid neck injury probably better than the paramedics.........but that doesn't matter when you're in shock. I worked at it frantically while coaching those that were helping only to find that I never got the strap off and her breathing was getting fainter. She had bled so much by now that it was running into the next lane & starting to coagulate. She started moaning in pain & I just collapsed defeated & resigned to my failure that caused her death.

The accident was at 10am. She got out of surgery at midnight.
Her Injuries:
Left arm broken at the wrist, right arm compound fracture, broken fingers
3 broken vertebrae in her back
Punctured bladder
broken pelvis
broken nose
top lip reattached

No head injuries (thanks scorpion)
No internal bleeding (thanks to the man upstairs)

*******oh yeah***** & a neck that was broken in 3 places

I didn't kill her or paralyze her, but I could have. I wasn't ready for what I saw today. I could have done better and I should have done better. What will you do when its your turn?

wow, a sobering read,
our thoughts and prayers are with you and your wife at this difficult time,
all the best

Update:
She made it through the night, but definately not out of the woods. Her pelvis fracture was what they call an "open book" fracture. It broke in the front & opened up like a book.... It was more damage than they could fix in one surgery.


For those that asked about helmet removal.

Never Remove a helmet from someone unconscious unless you have no other choice. You can check an airway by reaching under the helmet and clearing their mouth out with your index finger. If breathing is ok leave the helmet alone.

If you need to remove a helmet, do not pull on the sides like you would normally do to your own. Instead, reach in under the visor with a flat palm and start working your fingers up their forehead creating a gap until you can get your palm on top of their head. slowly arch your fingers pushing the helmet up and away while keeping the head in position. This is done ONLY IN EXTREME EMERGENCIES and don't even attempt it without people to help stabilize the neck. Practice it a few times with a friend
