Remember the tough guy with the partially severed foot?
Here is another to add to the family of folk who break skin instead of bone.
The story with this guy is that apparently he was mountain biking and took a heavy landing with his foot on the pedal. It would appear his leg has overtaken his foot, and given that bone is stronger than skin, he has peeled like a banana.
I used to mountain bike when I was younger and this type of injury never occurred to me. I was always more concerned with becoming one with a tree or loosing parts of my face in the gravel.
Mountain bike guy wasn’t quite as stoic as our tough guy though. In the photo above you can see a medico holding him down while he is examined. I’m not afraid to admit I’d be like mountain bike guy in the same situation.
