The other night while listening to my favorite radio talk show, I heard this interesting news item. A man was participating in a motorcycle race when one of his legs was cut off. It sounds unbelievable, but true! It was reported that as he finished the race he noticed that part of one leg was gone. He said that he had felt a sharp pain in his leg but continued on with the race. Some people went back to find his missing leg, but it was reported as being so badly crushed that there was no hope of reattaching it. Has anyone else heard about this?

Yes, weemam. It is a horrible thing. I would imagine that his adrenaline level was so high that it probably saved his life.

Wow, that is amazing...and scary! This is the first I've heard about it. The guy must have been too enthralled in the race to notice he lost his leg. It's too bad his lost leg was destroyed...

Hello! Yeah I've read about this news online yesterday, well I'm not sure if we're referring to the same news. Did this happen in Japan? or somewhere in one of Asian countries?. But anyway, it's a shocking and sad story. I couldn't imagine being in such situation. Good thing he didn't die. Unbelievable indeed that he's still okay and survived after his leg was cut off. Just hope he'll be okay. Take care. cheers! :D
