ATV accident - into wire fence

April 1 1700 just finished dinner quickcall goes off Medical Aid

ATV accident, the victim has a laceration to the neck.

Arrived on scene at a house and found the young adult male with a neck injury. He had been frding a Yamaha Banshee, after dark, along a dirt road. The ATV struck a rock and veered through a barb wire fence. The victim was not wearing a helmet or protective riding gear.

He walked about 1/2 mile home and we were called after his father found him bleeding in the garage.

He had been cut across the neck by the barbed wire. The cut extended from ear to ear, down under the jaw. I could see his trachea.

The bleeding had stopped, he could talk, and had many other cuts and scratches. We landed the helicopter in the vacant lot and he was transported.

No helmet! ATV at night. I have not heard an updat on his condition yet.
Blessed be the Lord, my strength, who teaches my hands to war and my fingers to fight. Psalms 144:1
That is the Biblical way of saying, "Sight Alignment...Trigger control."

Similar accident a few years ago, one of our Ocean Rescue Guards on routine beach patrol on an ATV didn't see fishing line running from pole into ocean, line went right across his neck, also cut ear to ear, luckily wasnt that deep and didnt require stitches. After that he always went around where people were fishing.

Yeah, fishing line is BAD STUFF! But it's also very useful for station pranks...
