Accident do happen
Yesterday, I joined the ride organized by YummyNia. The route was Novaliches - Pangarap - Macabud - Licao-licao - Ricafort - Novaliches.
The ride was fun and uneventful until I crashed somewhere in Ricarfort. I was told by my companions that I was unconscious for about 3 minutes. I didn't remember what happened, why and how I crashed. My helmet was damaged; and, I had bruises on my knees and elbows.
I was brought to the nearest hospital, where my injuries were treated and my right shoulder x-rayed. Good, there's no fracture.
I got my cellphone and called my wife to fetch me. My bike was entrusted by BackRoger to one of the residents nearby.
After a few minutes, wifey arrived with my two kids. After settling my hospital bills, we went directly to the National Kidney and Transplant Institute for a CT Scan. Fortunately, the result was negative.
Accident really do happen. But, we don't know when and where. So, we should always wear protective gears, especially, the helmet. My helmet saved me!
