There was a amazing lofting in the Great Lakes last year. It occurred during the violent weather that brought 2 ft. of lake effect snow to Buffalo in October last year. The rider was lofted about 45 ft. off the water, slammed in creating a huge explosion of water and DROWNED. Circumstances and able help on the scene conspired to bring him back to life ...

SBC Kiteboard Magazine carried an article with details about this remarkable accident in the current issue. Adam Patterson captured most of this accident in still photography, several of which appear in the article at the link below. I am working on a video supplement to this article incorporating these amazing images that should be fairly intriguing. SBC Kiteboard put this article up complete on their new website at:

I hope to put a video together about this accident. He was amazingly fortunate to have survived. Thanks in large part to the very effective help of his friends.
