Man thanks strangers who helped him after ‘horrendous accident’

I was in a horrendous accident a couple of weeks ago in Pismo Beach where I broke two vertebrae in my neck and also broke my right ankle. People on the beach rushed in to help as soon as the accident occurred.

The first responders were terrific, but I really want to thank the “ordinary people” who came over immediately.

I’m not surprised, as it’s what I would have done in a similar situation. I’ve done that a couple of times before, and no one ever said thank you to me. I want to say “THANK YOU!” to those unnamed individuals who came to my and my crewmates’ aid after our accident. Your help is greatly appreciated and I hope that you read this and feel appreciated.
