Anyone who has ever dealt with a person who is in shock knows that it can make people do and say some pretty odd things. British Columbia resident Andrew MacDonald is a great example, as despite massive injuries, he shot a cell video of himself being extricated from his car following an accident last month.
In his YouTube posting, MacDonald describes what happened:
On January 11th, 2015 I fell asleep behind the wheel at 5:30 in the morning after a
night in Victoria, BC. I drove straight into a pole on the drivers side at 50 – 60km/h in Duncan, BC. Suffered a broken right arm. Broken left Femur. Broke both knee caps. And both ankles.
Went for major surgery in Victoria which took total 14 hours over a couple days, 10 hours on January 12th and 4 hours on January 13th. Metal plates and screws in everything I broke. Spent a month in hospital. Only 1 hot nurse 😐 But I’m home now. And recovering quickly! And FYI, I was not drinking, or under the influence of any drugs.”
Kudos to the fire fighters for their great bedside manner, keeping the patient as alert as possible and even having a bit of fun with him.
