Son’s injuries show importance of helmet

July 19, 2012
The Alpena News

I have a story that you might be interested in. It is concerning the Helmet Law. Two years ago my 23 year old son got into a major motorcycle accident in Malaysia. He was not wearing the appropriate clothing and only a half Helmet. Therefore his injuries were multiple.

Road rash over 75% of his body, wounds all over his arms and legs. Facial lacerations Open head injury that left him with partial memory lost, speech and sens of smell. Arm and shoulder injury has left him without use of his right arm. Since his accident my son will never be the same. He use to be very popular, social, outgoing and very athletic.

I would like to show young people what could happen to them if you don't wear the proper attire and helmet.

If this can save one life and one mothers heartache , this letter will have served it's purpose.
