  • I know the helmet thing has been done, but I've got a picture..

    I know the helmet bandwagon has been done over and over, but I have a picture that says a million words about the reason to use helmets:

    The wearer hit the ground hard enough to be seriously injured in other ways, but her head was undamaged.

    Here is a photobucket link:

      Maybe I need to make it public--I'll see what I can get done. It is the worst thing I've ever seen, helmet damage-wise.

        I've changed the settings so it should be accessible to everyone now.

            LAZ, the helmet manufacturer of that helmet might be interested in that helmet. Don't throw it out, and I can't recognize it -- don't know the company -- but I would send the pix to someone in customer service or product management. They are interested in these impacts.

              I can't see it either.

              This post will tell you how to make an FB photo public.

                    Can't see it either, and I have an active FB account and am signed in.

                      OK, let's try this. If it doesn't work I'll figure out how to become a premium member as I think everyone should see this picture.

                      Scroll through the pics until you see the helmet.

                      The rider is OK in the head, damaged in the body.

                        I clicked the first link and it said content not currently available. I clicked the second link and there were 10 pictures...8 of jumps, one of a dog and one of a tractor.

                          I'm very curious about this photo now... but I can't see it. Same deal as the above poster on the second link. You can upload it to a photobucket account to avoid becoming a premium member...

                            Click on the weird thing between the gray horse and the Log jump. It's the helmet.

                            I'll see if I can figure out another photo service, but I am computer illerate, which is why facebook is easy for me--it is typically usable by 5 year olds...

                                Shocked but glad that the rider's head wasn't injured, and jingles that her other injuries heal quickly!!!

                                  Goodness - that looks like it must have been one horrible accident! Glad the helmet did it's job!

                                      That was a sobering photo, indeed. Thanks for figuring out a way to post it so it could be seen.

                                        Retread--I sent it in the ambulance with the medics/rider so the docs could see it. I hope to get it back to send it to the helmet manufacturer.

                                        I will say the medic looked at the helmet and said "it's a damn good thing she had that on".
