I'VE BEEN RIDING FOR A LONG TIME AND NEVER THOUGHT SOMETHING LIKE THIS COULD HAPPEN SO EASILY! I ALWAYS WEAR GEAR THAT I THOUGHT WOULD NO DOUBT PROTECT ME FROM SOMETHING AS SIMPLE AS THIS. CRAZY!
It looks like the branch protruding from the downed tree was extremely sharp and hit at the perfect angle to puncture his boot and impale his shin extremely deep. His buddy made the worst move ever, in my opinion, by removing the branch from his leg. Looks like he was wearing Alpinestars Tech 8 RS boots which are supposed to be the best boot out there, and they better be @ $500 a pair. The branch did puncture his artery and he could have easily bled out if his journey back was too long. Very unlucky.. and lucky day for this guy.
