I swear it is always something in the McBride household. Bryce got a 250 YZ dirt bike for his Birthday- so Trey has been riding the old 125- the front break had not worked in quite awhile- so they use the back break. Well, Jen's brother came over today- he is our go to guy to fix stuff. So, he fixed the front break.
Remember Trey is a beginner rider- and is not very skilled in the use of a front break. So he took a jump- hit the break and came down on a stiff wheel and went flying on his neck. The dirt bike landed somewhere on his head. His chest pad cracked- but did it's job.
My best friend and neighbor is an RN- so she put a c-collar on him- we got him on a "back board"- (shelf)- and off to the Er we went because his pupils were different sizes.
The great news is- he is just fine. The worst part of the whole ER trip was- they cut his shirt and sweat shirt off. Once I knew he was OK- I snapped a few pictures with my phone for a scrapbook page. :) Gotta love a Mom who is a scrapbooker.

Jen is so stressed out- Trey just hurts
This is what is left of his shirt after they cut it off
This is the chest pad- broken in half from impact- it did it's job!
