A biker’s worst nightmare.
Video footage from a motorcycle’s-eye view captured the frightening incident of a man of motorcycle flying off of a cliff.
If you blink you might miss it, but the crash occurs at around the 20-second mark of the video and is followed up with a slow motion replay.
Uploader KoraMK2 wrote on YouTube that this was “one of the craziest things [he’s] ever seen.”
“One of the craziest things I’ve ever seen. Also the rider is one of the luckiest guy in the world to be able to walk away from this with just a fractured shoulder. I’m not sure exactly how he lost control of the bike but the bike got stuck in the tree,” he wrote. “Bike still runs after being caught by the tree. Not everyone gets as lucky as this. This should be a reminder to all of the dangers of riding in the canyons. If you have the need for speed, ride within your comfortable limits and always ride with a friend. ”
You read that right — the guy who flew off the cliff only broke his shoulder and his ride still runs after getting stuck in a tree. A truly fortunate dodge of a bullet.
The Drive identified KoraMK2 as David Park. He rushed to the aid of “Willie.”
“This should be a reminder to all of the dangers of riding in the canyons,” he said. “If you have the need for speed, ride within your comfortable limits and always ride with a friend.”
Willie was composed enough to say that he felt his back tire slip before careening off the cliff.
“My back tire like slipped, and it made me slide forward and then I couldn’t control the bike,” he said.
Willie was airlifted to the hospital and is expected to make a full recovery.
