Teen saves man after motorcycle accident

A man in Lakeland, near Tampa, was involved in a motorcycle accident with an RV. Reports indicate that the RV ran the red light, and the bike hit it. The rider was thrown off of the bike and was unconscious.

One of the first people on the scene was a 17-year-old student who was heading to a school basketball game. He said that he saw how badly the man had been hurt and just knew he had to stop.

On top of being unconscious, the rider had a broken collarbone, a broken arm and broken ribs. He was also bleeding and was on the edge of going into shock.

The teen and an off-duty police officer got to the man and began giving him frantic treatment, trying to keep him alive. They got him stabilized, and then emergency crews showed up and brought him to the hospital.

The man's wife says that the teen is a hero who saved the motorcycle rider's life and that he wouldn't have survived if the young man hadn't stopped.

What is amazing is that the teen should never have been there in the first place. He was a full hour late for his basketball game. If he had left any sooner and been anywhere close to on time, he would have gone through the area long before the wreck.

Though the motorcycle rider pulled through, his story shows just how severe injuries can be when another driver makes a mistake. Those who are injured and need extensive medical care may want to look into their rights to compensation.
