Injured Motorcyclist Records Heartfelt Goodbye Videos To Family After Crash

You know how they say your life flashes before your eyes when you're in mortal danger?

Well, if you're one of the lucky ones who survives the life flashing phase you may start to wonder how much time you have left on Earth- and what remains unsaid between you and your loved ones.

On October 15th motorcyclist Kevin Diepenbrock and his co-worker Phillip Polito slipped and crashed on the famously deadly Dragon's Tail in Deals Gap, North Carolina.

Polito died in the crash, and Kevin suffered serious injuries that included "two punctured lungs, 17 breaks in 12 ribs and multiple spine fractures", injuries that made him think his days might be numbered.

So Kevin pulled out his smartphone and started recording a raw and heartfelt video of what he thought were his final goodbyes.

Kevin survived and was rescued 30 hours later, and now he's a lucky man on the mend with a tragic tale to tell and the video footage to prove it.

this is near my home. the tradition is to nail a piece of your totaled bike to a tree near the crash site. there are trees covered with parts all along the road. a friend of mine dropped his bike there in the early 90's he manages to separate himself from it before it went over the edge. he hobbled back a mile or so to a store and asked to use the phone to get help. the store clerk looked at him, nodded and said "ahhh, the dragon was hungry."
