Chad Knight Falls Down!

On friday night I was filming at Syndrome for my “FKD rider of the week” segment in aug. I fell on a ledge that runs next to a square railing, spun around and impaled my face into the end of the rail. I have an orbital fracture and 18 stitches. This sometimes requires surgery, to rebuild the floor of the eye socket, if the eyeball sinks in 2mm or if vision hasn’t returned to normal in 2 weeks. Mine is already about 70%, which is reassuring. The left half of my face is still completely numb though. I attached some pictures so you can better understand the injury (one diagram is a before, the other, an after with the orbital bone broken and the optical nerve and muscle impacted into the sinus below. Same with my CAT scan).

If i had had my head angled an inch lower I would have lost my eye. I got fucking lucky with this one.
