The Fishing Expedition...

DON'T DRIVE THAT FISHING BOAT TOO FAST!!!!
So, you thought YOU had a bad day at the office .



OK all you medics......


Top this one

This is an actual emergency room photo of a fisherman who lost control of his high-speed bass boat in West Virginia. Warden's believe that he was traveling at a speed of approximately 75 mph at the time of the accident. He was unable to negotiate a curve in the narrow waterway. Unfortunately for him, upon striking the shoreline and being ejected from the boat, he landed back end first on an old fence post.


You can probably picture what happened next, but the atta ched picture really says it all. The good news is that after about 6 months,this man made a full recovery after suffering a shattered hip, broken leg, several broken ribs, internal injuries and soft tissue damage. Doctors credited his recovery to the fact that the post lodged itself so tightly that there was little or no blood loss.


Now that's got to hurt!!!

I saw that pic about 3 years ago claiming it was from a snowmobile accident.
