WATCH: Guy Lucky To Be Alive As Motorcycle Flies Off Cliff
This guy smashed into a guardrail while on his motorcycle and the impact caused him to be catapulted into the air over a cliff. He did two flips and then wrecked into a tree. Yet he somehow not only survived but only had a fractured shoulder. Not to mention that seconds before he flew over the cliff, the motorcycle driver was nearly flattened by an SUV.
From The Drive:
In the video below, rider David Park (KoraMK2 on YouTube) and his friends are tackling the canyons when one rider, called Willie, can be seen extending both of his legs while missing a turn. Later on in the video, Willie explains what happened, “My back tire like slipped, and it made me slide forward and then I couldn’t control the bike.” Unfortunately for him, on the other side of the turn lies not a grassy field, but a steep mountainside. The rider hits the guardrail and flips twice, disappearing into the trees. Park descends the terrain, sliding down on the brush quite easily to Willie’s aide, noticing that his left arm may have broken during the accident.
Willie was not able to climb up the cliff because it has such a steep incline so he had to be airlifted to a hospital. Emergency responders said that Willie was a “lucky man” and things could have been much, much worse.
The motorcycle got lodged in a tree, but it reportedly still runs.
Willie, how about next time you go easy around those turns.
