Is he selling his kite? I could talk my ex husband to take up a new sport.

As you as you don't have an ulterior motive, what harm could come of it?

maybe he can become like you----a fat slob of a woman who does zero exercise and eats more twinkies than publix can carry. perhaps you and the jackazz captain can breed and create kids that look like the good year blimp. tell your husband to smack you in the mouth and force him to make you get a job and suspend your internet play time. keep on hating you two losers-----seems to be all your good at.

Let's hope that this young man, Kevin, improves and gets out of the hospital. He seems like a good young man. Accidents happen to all of us. He was just out enjoying himself. Good luck, Kevin.

it's not hate truth--i call it intervention. sometimes these folks need a dose of their own medicine for them to realize that some people (me included) enjoy taking calculated risks, ie. surfing, kite surfing, motocross, mountain climbing etc. so please call me dr. kelly because i am here to help the fat--oops i mean obese, uncoordinated, no talent, boring lives, zero fun having people. and i do all of this for free.

after he recovers, he needs to go to jail for at least 30 days. the stupid jerk not only almost killed himself, but made paramedics waste time on him. 28 years old and no common sense. i hate to see what you are going to do when youre 50 a-hole!!!

Glad to hear he is doing better. It looked pretty bad. Sometimes you simply get in over your head.
I was just riding my bike off a bridge crossing the New River. My floppy hat brim dropped over my eyes. I was going so fast I couldn't see nor could I let go of the handle bars. Luckily there were no cars parked along the curb otherwise I would have done a face plant in a rear window.

I'm glad this guy is improving. I wish they would tell us the extent of his injuries.
Here is one that probably didnt survive his own idiocy

Those darn building walls are a hazard. Also, what happened to the quick release on the chute? Was there adequate warning regarding the wind? Did the paramedics respond as quickly as they should? All in all, who is responsible? Thanks.

For a second, I thought the title of the story meant his condition was failing.

i like how people tend to pick on these people who do "high risk sports"..let me tell ya , some activites that arent even "sport" are very high risk.
take all the people eating crappy foods and getting fat,( and by the way not exercising at even low risk sports like walking a block a day)
as they get fattert andf fattert the obvious side effects and risk are right in front of there collective faces and, in time they risk a massive cardiac event.
now whats more stupid???

Good luck Kevin.

So many ignorant comments on here, but keep in mind a young man has a lot of recovery ahead of him.

He should be the new spokeperson for the Trojan Condoms Co.
