Dirt biker misjudges the terrain and accidentally launches himself off a 40-foot cliff
Homer Simpson’s epic double face-plant down a cliff-face is one of the iconic moments of 90s comedy. It’s one we’ve all seen f**ken dozens of times, and we’ve all bloody laughed at it. At the risk of sounding like Captain Obvious, in the real world, falls like that are no laughing matter. Yeah, nah, cliff faces are serious business and even a slight misstep around them can be f**ken fatal. So when this motorcyclist misjudges the terrain, he’s heading on a downward trip to Destination F**ked.
We’re heading to Wales for this one, and in particular, we’re heading to Merthyr. Don’t ask us how to pronounce it. Anyway, that’s where Adrian Owen was enjoying a bloody tops ride with his mates, when he went hooning along some jumps and hills without realising he was about to hit the skids and plummet down a forty foot drop!
Owen knows how bloody lucky he is to be alive, but he didn’t get away scot-free. He’s said to have ‘significant’ injuries. Despite that, the camera on his helmet survived the free-fall and Owen shared the video on Facebook.
“I would like to say a massive thank you to my family and friends for their concern at this time. I am very lucky to be still alive! I’d like to give a big shout-out to the mountain rescue, air ambulance crew, medical staff and anyone else that has helped me pull through this.”
Of course, no post like that is complete without a nod to the boys!
“Also a big shout-out to the boys for reassuring and comforting me while the help was on its way, and to anyone that rides off-road bikes always be aware of your surroundings as all it takes is one silly mistake like mine and it could be game over! I got off very lucky!”
It’s great to see the lad’s in good spirits. We wish him all the best in his recovery.
Final thought: On a serious note, please stay safe and don’t f**k about near cliff-faces. They really are as dangerous as they look.
