Untrue. While I can’t be certain to the fate of the person in the photo I posted, as I have no idea who it was, they had a certain survival rate that was considerably higher than the zero percent chance they would’ve had without the helmet. Sure, the crash was intense enough that it did the damage you see, but that doesn’t mean the driver was killed, whereas had his skull collided with the pavement in the same manner, the EMS providers arriving on scene would classify him as “obvious death.”
Dead pool is beautiful.
Accurate representation of my existence.
I do not know the individual involved in this, but, as an EMT, I feel compelled to post things like this. Wear a damn helmet, guys. I know you may think you look awesome and all the ladies will love how reckless you are, but you’re honestly just demonstrating just how little you value your own life. I know this horse has been absolutely beaten to death over the years, and I’m sure that my words won’t change some of your minds, but just look at the damage sustained by that helmet. Now imagine if your face was put through the same situation. While the helmet merely had part of it ground away by the sheer friction involved, your skull would be pudding. End of story.
TLDR Version: Wear a freaking helmet.
Perfect use of this meme!
