    ^Haha, nice.

    That was kinda freaky, though... Would that be caused by some spinal injury or something?

    I think it was probably a bad idea to remove the helmet, but I`m no EMT.

    you should always remove the helmet in case he vomits because if you not remove it he might suffocate on his own vomit...

    i was a paramedic for several years and at least here in europe it is standard practice to remove the helmet.

    A head injury can cause convulsions.
    Removing the helmet in that situation was the right thing to do, as his airway needs to be kept clear.

    There was two people in the background saying "what do we do!?". That made me angry... stupid sheepish jerks.


    That looked really bad. I mean, we see crazy-ass car crashes all the time now, on the internet... but you rarely see the driver after the crash convulsing on the ground with.. bleh.

    That`s classic head injury; I`m willing to bed that he was angry, agitated, and even taking swings at the EMS when they finally arrived. Concussion is a good start at what he had. Next would most likely be at the very least vertebral fractures. Always remove the helmet if you feel it`s safe to do. There could still be a chance that the person`s neck is broken and moving the head too much could result in paralysis or death but weighed against the potential for a constricted airway or the possibility of them vomiting and aspirating (breathing) it into their lungs and at the very least contracting pneumonia after the face - well it`s worth it.
    If you`re participating in stunts like this, ALWAYS have someone trained in advanced first aid on hand. ALWAYS. I`ll take a guess and say he most likely lived based on the face he had a helmet on. No helmet and I`d be guessing he`d be dead or at the very least, paralyzed to some degree.

    Yea, I wonder why people don`t have trained medical people around when doing stunts like this. Judging from the background it looks like they were out in the middle of nowhere, meaning it would take the ambulance quite a bit to get there...

    I heard that when you suffer a bad head injury and go unconscious, your body puts you into a seizure/convulsion to jumpstart your system back up.
    Its pretty f**ked up, but yeah.

    That was scary.

    What else should be done, other than remove the helmet and call an ambulance? Just watch? :/

    And is what eagles5 said really true?
    I`ve heard that those convulsions aren`t always harmful? It certainly doesn`t look like it!
    I wonder what it feels like when you`re like that... Probably like nothing if you`re unconscious?

    Whoa, I`ve never written a message that has so many questions.. I`ll shut up now.

    He`s probably suffering from epilepsy. The same thing happened to a friend of mine, though he was hit by a car. Now he can`t deal with too much physical stress, else he`ll have convulsions.

    I always read that it was a bad idea to remove a helmet after an accident. Since like Aeladil said there could be injuries to the neck that could result in a much worse injury if you try to move his head, or remove the helmet. A helmet typically doesn`t aphysxiate a person nor would it collect any vomit causing it to go down into the throat. It might be better to move him into the recovery position to prevent that if you have to move them at all.

    I believe it`s better to leave it at least until paramedics arrive.

    Oh, man. I think I saw some blood next to his head. Seeing something like that first hand probably will scar you for a long time. If my best friend was lying on the ground shaking uncontrollably, I would really freak out. But I got to agree with the rest of you, I wouldn`t start shouting "What do we do?"

    I wonder..
    I`ve seen people knocked unconsious before...And they`ve done the same thing. As if the body is trying it`s best to work but the head missed the memo..

    And, I`m sorry, you -never- -ever- move the individual who may have a neck injury unless you absolutely have to.

    Regardless of the circumstances. Vomiting probably won`t be an issue, but moving the head will be.


    Sorry, guys. But that`s the way it is, and this I do know.

    Maybe if you were an EMT to get their head on the board, but...as for their random friends standing around, they were wrong to move the head at all.


    Then again, looked like he was moving it without their help...

    I`ve had convulsions before as a result of a very severe panic attack and I can tell you it`s really really f*cking scary. You can actually feel your entire body shaking uncontrollably and a million things are going through your head but nothing really registers, probably the worst experience I`ve ever had.

    Yeah, I`m pretty sure the fact that his whole body was convulsing was sufficient evidence that he didn`t have a spinal cord injury, otherwise he would be paralyzed. So moving the head to prevent aspiration was right.

    Incorrect, Tundralost. Their may not be a spinal -cord- injury, but there still could be a -spine- injury...which, due to his moving could -lead- to a spinal cord injury.

    And, Squinge. When you asphyxiate you lose oxygen, and aspiration is from you choking on something. So, you`re actually wrong.

    He would asphyxiate because of aspiration due to vomit.

    Oh, and related to that, sorry I didn`t connect the two posts....

    I heard this story in CPR class about this couple that was in a car accident together. The man seemed perfectly fine but the woman was pretty frigged up.....Aaaaanywho...
    He (The husband) walked into the ER, following his wife and was (By all accounts) alright, but when the doctor walked in to give him the news (Which was left out of the story) He jerked his head toward the doctor and because of an unknown injury, severed his spinal cord. In other words, he had broken his neck and was so jacked on andrenilin (Spelling, probably) that he didn`t realize it, and in the quick head turn, finished the job...so to speak.

    Yeah, that`s my story, and it`s probably not true. But, that`s how it was told to me.

    At the very least they were smart to leave him on his side...I`ve had friends go into epileptic sesures and they were jerking so hard that I literally had sit on them and use my entire body to hold them on their side...

    As far as the whole helmet thing, you`ve really got to assess the situation. If it isn`t going to block the airway then leave it (at the very least unstrap the bottom)...I`m sure most people on here have seen when a football player takes a huge hit and has to be carted off they usually leave his helmet on but unscrew his face mask to free up his face...

    I have to admit, in that situation, I would say `What should we do?` but NOT referring to calling an ambulance, but instead what we should do whilst the ambulance is coming.

    Perhaps that`s what the guy meant..

    Imeagla, I meant that since he was already moving a lot (fast jerky movement at that), and that nothing bad was coming of it, then there was probably no risk of spinal injury, and that the more immediate threat was obviously aspirating.

    Vomit does not have to leave the oral cavity to induce aspiration. This is one of the reasons why you`re to be NPO (nothing by mouth) before surgery in case something goes wrong with the endotracheal intubation and you `vomit`. It can`t come out of the mouth due to the mechanism of the endotracheal tube, but you can still aspirate that vomitus back into your lungs.

    Furthermore, any time you are knocked unconscious, either from a punch to the head or by simply falling down, there is a risk of head injury. Loss of consciousness is one of the things physicians check for on a trauma evaluation and if there is an LOC they need to know for how long it was sustained (if the patient is not unconscious at the time of the assessment).

    As for being in the middle of nowhere, that causes risks yes. But many trauma hospitals have heli-vac available and while it isn`t an immediate solution that would be ideal, it`s a lot better than waiting for an ambulance to get there.

    Finally (because I ran out of allowed room), he may (as pointed out earlier) not have a CORD injury but any depression of the cord by say fractures of the verebtral bodies (spine) can cause damage to the cord possibly requiring surgical repair or decompression (decompression laminectomies etc.). Keeping the airway clear is top priority in cases like this; if the victim cannot "protect" their airway then care needs to be made to do so for them until medical help has arrived. Despite that though - you still do not reposition the victim: You wait for trained help to arrive.

    And again: It doesn`t matter if it`s just a group of guys out having a blast in the back woods - it`s always wise to have someone trained in emergency first aid. The classes are usually taught at low or no cost through either colleges or here in Canada through the St. John`s Ambulance. Better safe than sorry.

    Idiot1: CALL 911

    Well of course your`e going to call 911! Everyone`s seen the ocmmercial`s when they were kids a 100000 times. It`S the first thing people do by instinct, but then what? Your`e far in the wilderness with a guy in convulsions in front of you! Most of us would be quite scared and confused and besides calling for help your`e totally useless.

    I also found it interesting that most of you are saying that the hemet comes off. My instincts wouldv`t told me to keep it on because of spinal injuries but yeah, my wrong.

    It wasn`t a very high jump so he must`ve gone down at a bad angle to hit his head that hard. He probably won`t have any permanent mental damage but quite a few broken bones.

    Those guys were morons to try to do that without having some sort of paramedic to help him. It really irks me that idiots like those guys do that stuff...grag...
