Chairing Slam 2007
Safety Tip

         

On Saturday 10/6/2007 while filming shots for the 2007 Chairing video J2 took a hard slam. After jumping and testing the new ramps a half dozen times everything seemed ready and built right. J2 attempted to do one final test run, as he took off the launch ramp his chair pulled to the right and landed incorrectly on the landing ramp. This caused his chair to tip sideways and slammed him too the ground. He slammed his head and shoulder into the pavement. He sustained a bloody deep cut on his head and sore, swollen, & sprained shoulder. One week after the slam he went to the ER to get X-Rays because of increased pain. Unfortunately the news was not good and he was told he had fractured his humorous shoulder bone. He was put in a sling for 5 weeks. J2 usually wears his helmet and pads during big stunts, but felt he did not need it during these low speed jumps. He was wrong!
