Mindy you are just as dumb as he is. He caused the bad thing to happen to him. It's idiots like you that want to make it seem like it's happenstance.

"a broken rib, four fractures on bones next to his spine, and cuts and abrasions all over his body."

I don't think a helmet is going to help you, pal.

i still have no sympathy for this moron. i think the video is funny and i think he got what he wanted and what he deserved.

thanks for being the example of what everyone with any type of sense already knows.

Poor guy... I'm quite certain that 'brain bruise' occurred long before he ever strapped that silly kite on his back. Too bad he didn't listen to the lifeguards.(I've yet to meet a brain-bruised lifeguard.) Meanwhile; I'm wondering why the hospital released him with all those injuries, still? He seems to remain a danger to himself and others.

Mindy, most of us aren’t not stupid enough to strap on a huge kite and go out tropical storm, get it?

He temporarily escaped the benign claws of evolution but eventually he'll do something else even more stupid.
