Jason McCaffrey, winner of the 2009 Weymouth Speed Week, has broken his neck in four places but was sent home with only painkillers, by doctors of the Dorset County Hospital, Dorchester, UK.

 

The kiteboarding champion had a serious accident in Portland Harbour, but the hospital professionals said he hadn’t broken bones. Three days later, McCaffrey couldn’t handle the pain and the four broken vertebrae and a cracked sternum were only detected at the Royal Victoria Hospital, in Ireland.

 

The 38-year-old European kitesurfing star has already undergone delicatesurgery to get him back to full recovery. Jason McCaffrey was kiteboarding when his board strap broke. During the accident his chin cracked the sternum and the injuries followed. Source: http://surfertoday.com
