Wow, that could have ended a whole lot worse!
Years ago up in Vermont I came up on a small dump truck hauling a demoed tool shed. Believe it or not, the roof section was sitting up on top of the load flapping in the breeze.
Now, my lightning quick thinking said, (BBQ) no, this wasn't a safe place to be. As I throttled up and went past, the roof section flew off the truck and I swear I had to duck as I went by. Glad the ultra wasn't selected that day.
At least if he would have completed the fall, it would have been a "soft" landing
Saw on Youtube where a guy's own chap had come off and went into the rear wheel on a busy NY thruway. He went down right in front of a big Dodge pickup, who stopped, flicked on his flashers, and helped the guy out. Whew! Just goes to show... A friend of mine's Dad hit a MOOSE riding his Harley in Michigan!
