Adam Colton sustained serious injury after a 400ft fall due to a wing collapse on his speed flying rig. Sir Colton has been a driving force behind the recent downhill skateboard (slash freestyle longboarding) in part to his videos and contributions to the product/brand development at Loaded Boards and Orangatang Wheels. He mentioned that he expects to make a full recovery and we hope it’s a speedy one at that!
Official verbiage from his Facebook Page:
Brocken monster. Broken neck, fractured lower back. Crack right jaw, chipped teeth, bruised lung, cut kidney, sure lucky to be alive, very close to being paralyzed… Will make a full recovery and fly and smile another day. Full report down the line. My spine protector saved life.
