This is one event that I would of been happy to not be talking about later on. Ended up breaking my jaw, pallet, and nose. Everything from my eye socketz down is broken. Got 7 plates put in to tie everything back togher. Pain meds dont even come close to doing there trick. Good thing is I came home the night before christmaz and my daughter is not freaked out by everything. She helps me clean the blood out of my mouth and noise every few hours, hell she says she wants to be a nurse now, but being only 7 I am sure she will chang her mind a few time about what she wants to do when she grows up.

Wow..sorry to hear. I hope you feel better...I am lost of words. Thats a pretty big wire rope to get hit with. Sounds like you have a good nurse.

I've used and have worked with 3/4" cables, cannot even imagine getting smacked in the face with a snapped/flying end of one (thank heaven you didn't catch it in the neck or eyes..).....Best wishes for a speedy less painful recovery WatchThis.

HOLY BEE-JEEBUS!!

I'm so sorry man--I'm glad you're at least still alive, as it sounds as if you were very nearly killed. Here's to a speedy recovery.

That's horrible!

I've been around pretensioning for concrete beams. Very unnerving at times when you start to hear the creaks & see a thick, wrapped steel cable stretch 6 inches.

I hope you heal up soon. I would not wish that experience on anyone.

Holy sh*t...consider yourself lucky that you didn't get your head sliced in half...i never stand around any ropes/cables that has tension in it, i remember pulling a oak tree root out with my SUV awhile back and the rope snapped, impact of the rope put a hole in the truck...imagine my face...
