Skiing & Snow
Notice the length of the video
Hi adiadv10. I was on the bus at the bottom of the hill and responded to the young lady. I agree with you that you "Never move someone unless it will help prevent further injury or death." We were in the middle of no-where. It was going to be 30-45 minutes before an ambulance would show up and she was developing respiratory problems. We had to get her down the hill. We arrived at the bottom of the hill with her about the time the ambulance arrived.
See guys? THIS is why they banned tobogganing
i think it was gods call that sent the emt there
Just jump off the tube
EMT Jim Chode 🙂
such an inspiration <3
My brother went down a steep hill like that one, he smashed his arm into a tree on the way down. He broke his hand and wrist in the process. He was very lucky.
What an amazing story, as a person with asbergers, riding has been a part of my life for most of it. It's wonderful therapy and I recommend it to anyone with a disability.
Shawna is a fighter and an inspiration! Obviously it's a reenactment, but please don't ever do what the actors did with the first girl! If she'd been badly hurt, moving her alone could've paralyzed or even killed her. Never move someone unless it will help prevent further injury or death.
She might want to get a service dog to help her.
OMG…this makes me wanna do this in the winter this year with my bf, our friends, & siblings! Haha!!! So going to try.
As bad as it is becoming a paraplegic, at least she didn't become a quadriplegic…
a helmet would not have helped
Florahelia a helmet would not have helped you dont wear helmets on your back whick is where she was hurt
Maybe she kicked the tube?
this is why you should test the fall line when attempting this kind of thing
I'm glad the use of her arms was not taken away and that she is a fighter =) Good for her!
@desertgirl30 maybe she had broken ribs or nerve damage can cause that too.
With you – making a bold statement like that but then not letting us know what the "exact" way was.
What was different about the real incident?
Severed means cut into separate pieces.
this is why we wear helmets now when riding sleds and tubes
she was paralyzed from the chest down. and it dont take that much to shake your head. your kneck is not part of your chest
If you see her riding a horse that would tell you she's paralyzed from the chest or legs down. If she were paralyzed from the neck down there's no way she would be able to ride the horse….
bless her heart. just beleave that god will heal you and he will. he will help you through all of that
I went sledding once at a park and I hit a tree at full speed. I walked away without a scratch but I hit a lady before the sled bounced back into some rocks. I guess she had a few scratches and her leg hurt but it was nothing serious. The sled i was using crumpled in the front but i really believed it saved me from serious injury.
I'll never forget the day I went sledding on a neighborhood sledding hill with a pretty big amount of trees around it. A girl and her friend went down the hill and lost control. The girl in front saw she was headed towards a tree but the girl behind her found out to late. All I remember is screaming at her to jump without knowing her name or anything. The girl hit the tree face first and she was just laying there. My friend and I ran down and slipped and slid to her. continued
that was hush
This girl has a really great attitude. 🙂
BAHAHA JIM CHODE 2:22
It's things like this that make me wish that in the future, hopefully sooner than later, we'll find a cure for paralysis.
@richyloike She can drive with the use of hand controls.
Something very similar happened to me. I was with a youth…we went 8 on a tube. Luckily none of us were paralized although it is a miriacle. I was on the very top of the pile. I thank God and EMS everyday.
Please only tube on proper hills! Not in the forest.
i'm confused, didn't the doc say she was a quadropolegic? doens't that mean that the legs and arms are immobilized?
@allgood2000 what does severed meen
Anyone notice the time length of this video?
This happened to my brother luckily he was about to hit the tree and this guy stopped it and he only had some back pain he was only 8 and it was so sad but wouldn't the girl roll off??
ok, what happened? i skipped to 2:04 to see what happened to shawna.
you know some kid was trowing rocks at a tree and i was under that tree and he a lose branch or something and then the pointy end of that branch hit my head and i started to bleed and all of this happenned during pe at school and this vidoe made me realize that maybe something worse could have happened
I think that snow-tubing should be illeagle, I would rather go down a hill on a sled, it's much safer, then an innertube.
Does anyone know how her spinal injury was related to the severe chest pain she was feeling? Just curious.
@HaggisMcMutton263 come to oregon, there isnt a good hill without trees anywhere…
I hate it wen im watching this and i happen to read the comments and it kinda ruins everything….
1. What's the episode after this one?
2. How in the world can she stay balanced on a horse if she's paralyzed from the chest down??
As soon as the first girl slammed into the tree trunk i would have jumped off the tube and rolled to a stop.
wait a second… if I get slammed into a tree, i get to live by myself? … *slams into a tree*
