    SCI Accident Scene

    Hey Donno,
    Great idea to explain what happened. Only difference is this was a picture I took on an earlier flight from my plane. NO GOOGLE EARTH!!!

    See earlier post for explaination and injuries list.

    The image isn't showing up. Split fuel line really sucks! The cause of our engine failure was water in the fuel due to non compliance with a couple of ADs on the fuel filler cap and wrinkles in the fuel tank bladder. The wrinkles allowed water to be trapped and not flow down to the drain (until the wings started rocking a bit).

    Like you, I'm glad to be alive, but if you had asked me that morning I'm sure that I would have said that I'd rather be dead than paralyzed. Sure changed my mind in a hurry

    MVA while pig hunting. Driver was going too fast, went outta control and our truck flipped. I broke my neck, was the front seat passenger. Am now a c 4/5/6 central cord quad, with a host of other problems. Just wish the driver gave a dam, woulda been nice!

    I have a spinal cord injury...a spinal cord injury DOES NOT have me!

    OK I don't know which fall nor does it matter I fell and fractured 4 vertebra all I know from the mri is I a have a crack in 4 vertebra so fucking what? wasting money on a cure that, i will not benefit from, I will be dead, like I'm going be alive in x years, they waste money on a cure when pain relief is more important and will save live. never saw my self as an sci dsw the cp and the arthritiis as worse.

    I was going 100 mph in my mitsubishi eclipse trying to pass another car, jumped over in the left lane, hit the grass, over corrected when I snatched the wheel and when the car began to fishtail, I just let the steering wheel go and started praying. When the car stopped flipping I didn't have a scratch on me but my neck was broken at c4/c5.
