Young Cyclist Saved By Helmet

Young Cyclist Saved By Helmet

This is the moment when a young girl comes around the corner on her bike and smashes head on into a car.
It looks like the girl has an injury to her nether regions but hopefully she has recovered.
I say by now because the video is over a year old.
This happened in a caravan park in Sydney, Australia.
It proves that all cyclists should wear a helmet.

Only the little girls pride was hurt apparently, nothing to worry about.
It does show that wearing a crash helmet will save lives though.

Ah. The poor little lass.
It could have been worse had the little kid never had a crash helmet on.
David Bowie has died - what more can I say :cry:

That looked and sounded bad.
I am glad the little girl wasn't seriously injured.
Look at me :D

If Jimmy Saville was driving that car he would have been first there to pick the little girl up.

It looked quite bad.
Why was the driver not out first :?
What was that you said again - I didn't quite hear you.

Its quite a shocker really.
The mind boggles what would have happened if the car driver was speeding.
Its not just a lesson to cyclists its a lesson to drivers as well.
You just never know what is around the corner.
I am innocent, are you?

So glad it wasn't too serious.
I bet the little girl will learn to look before she leaps next time.
And more to the point...................
