This is an actual emergency room photo of a gentleman who lost control of his motorcycle on a country road in West Virginia . Troopers 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 road. Unfortunately for him, upon striking the ditch and being ejected from the bike, he landed back end first on a fence post from an old barnyard fence that was downed on the side of the road. You can probably picture what happened next, but the attached picture says it all. This picture was obviously removed from the trooper's files without permission. 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 a splinter!!!
