Thread: Dad's crash at Don Pedro

  1. #1
    As some might already know...My old man crashed his Sanger Hydro doing over 100mph back in Big Creek at Lake Don Pedro. He is in a pretty bad state right now. We are going to have a very long road to recovery.
    I wanted to let you guys know that we are having a golf tournament to help support my family through these rough times.
    More details to come. We should have some great raffle prizes there that you wont need to be present to win. The tourn will be in the Bay Area just outside of Fremont
    Thanks so much

    damn bro sorry to hear this about your wishes to your family and friends...

    He went out for a pass just before dinner when the water was nice. The boat started to walk and either came apart or took a violent turn and tossed him. He used to race Blown Gas Hydro for years so we doubt it was anything he could control. He was wearing a LIFELINE jacket, but no helmet. He sustained a major head trauma and a slightly fractured vertabra. He has been in a coma state since the accident. So until he wakes, there is no way of telling the extent of the brain damage. Although intial CT scans show it to be pretty severe.
    We are all keeping our hope up though

    Sorry to hear that. Prayers are with your family and father during this trying time. Try to keep a positive outlook on things.

    Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family, and if it is any consolation, he is still alive because he had his Lifeline on. Please, everyone, put your gear on and be safe.

    Glad you started this thread to keep us posted.
    Here's hoping to see Ric back on the houseboat soon.

    Scott, I agree with you 100% on this. Apparently, there were some contusions in his groin area suggesting that the crotch straps were stressed when the jacket tried to slide off. Without those straps, Ric would probably be in another place right now.
    I emailed Lifeline to thank them for their product saving my cousin's life.
