My buddy went down today!

My buddy went down today after what I think was an attempt to pull a 2nd gear clutch wheelie @ approx 60mph. I think that he downshifted to far and locked up the rear wheel. The people that was behind us said all they saw was white smoke come from the rear wheel and then he went down. I was infront of him and just happend to look back in my mirror and my friend was about 5-6ft in the air spinning. I look forward then looked back again and saw him tumbling down the hwy and the bike went off in the ditch. The people behind us said the bike went about 10ft in the air after it hit the side of the road and flipped again then ended up in the water. He was not wearing any gear except helmet, and gloves, same as me. Has some major road rash to the back and his forearm, luckly he did not break any bones or die. I will be taking it easy untill I get fully geared now.
