From the 24-hour American news cycle, here’s an amazing clip of a rider who survived a 250-foot drop off a California cliff.
While running into a tree wouldn’t naturally be considered good luck, it was probably the branches that stopped Matthew Murray from even more serious injuries or death after he flew off the cliffside.
As it is, Murray ended up with a broken back and collarbone and punctured lung, somehow managing to climb the cliff for help after his crash. Is he lucky to survive, or unlucky for crashing in the first place? Either way, he’s a tough bugger to be able to make that climb while severely injured.
