Internal Decapitation (not graphic)

I heard this on XM this morning so I just had to find the video. This woman was in a car accident where her spine dislocated from her skull and she's still alive. There are only 2 documented cases and the other person this happened to died.

I watched on discovery about a 12 years-old kid fell from a bike - same thing - his first neck vertebrae got separated from a scull - he is alive, though not recovered to 100%

What an incredible story. That's so cool she's recovering as much as is.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

Travis Pastrana (source: wikipedia)
In 1998 at a Triple Crown event in Lake Havasu when he was 14, Travis Pastrana jumped a 120-foot ramp and came up short. In the process of the crash he separated his spine from his pelvis, which put him in the medical books and left him in a coma for two weeks and in a wheelchair for three months. “I was in and out of consciousness for about three days and had six blood transfusions,” says Pastrana. He also adds that according to doctors only three people in the U.S. have ever lived after this kind of injury.

And he's still rocking it with his recent double backflip!

At least there's a lot of meat holding you together at the pelvis. The thought of my throat and veins holding on my head gives me the creeps

That is amazing. I don't know if I would wish for death or actually go through all of that pain and rehabilitation?

wonder how many xbox kids now know what a halo is.

Operating a motorcycle. So easy, even a caveman can do it. Knowing how to ride? Priceless.
