So on friday me and a few friends went to a place called the bluffs, basically a recreational area of the american river. We went their because our friend jakie got a new camera and wanted to break it in, so we go to an area above the fair oaks bridge (for those of you who the the area) it has an incredible view of the river and its surroundings. The highest point of where we were was well over 80ft. up. So jakie takes some pics of us and the generl area. She needs to go to the car and i gave her my keys which were connected to my friend willies keys. She goes, comes back, and like an idiot she throws them to my friend willie and he misses and off they go over the clif onto a shelf below. Willie goes to look over the edge to try to see where they are and if there is a safe/convienent way to get to them. In the process of doing so the ground under his feet gave way and he fell aprx. 30 feet, hit a large metal pipe, then fell another 30 feet to the ground. Me and a friend brian got to him quickly, he was concious and speaking, but in a world of hurt. We stay with him for paramedics to arrive. they took him on a boat accross the river to a waiting hellicopter where he was taken to UC davis medical center. the fire/rescue guys came back on the boat for brian and I and took us to an ambulance where we got dried off and i did an interview with the news. Fortunately the worst of his injuries is a shattered pelvis. He easily could have died. he is recovering smoothly in UCD and in a few days he will be transfered to another hospital for surgery. he has very high spirits and is trying to make the best of the situation.

news cast:i am brandon (they say brEndon) yeah i look/sound like a total tool cuz i was cold and wet, so whatever.

This might officially make this kid the most brutal person you know.

In other news...
It's going to be hilarious when irony doubles back on you.

Well, I don't think a shattered pelvis is exactly something you walk away from without some work.

Do you live in Tennessee? I've heard of an area called "the bluffs" somewhere around here. Never been. I feel bad for your friend, but seriously, you guys were dicking around on the SIDE OF A CLIFF!!!!! It's almost inviting something to happen.

Well, I think that's why he said it's not worth the risk.

But of course, hindsight is always 20/20.
