India Today (India), Monday, September 23, 2018 09:00:07A skater, who fell and broke his right ankle in a backyard accident in Mumbai, has a chance to become a hero in the form of a new skateboard for the rest of his life.
The man, who is yet to be named, was walking home from the skate park on Sunday evening when he hit a rock, injuring his ankle.
He was rushed to the nearby Hospital and after a night of surgery, he has been named in a skater’s honor.
The incident happened at a spot known as the garage door in the suburb of Rishikesh in the city’s south.
“I went to pick up the skateboard at the garage and the rock hit me.
I fell down.
I got up and started walking home.
I stopped at the road, saw a motorcycle coming and I was going to get out,” said a distraught the man who asked to be identified as Mohammad.
“When I saw the motorcycle, I started screaming.
Then I saw my skateboard lying on the road.
I was so scared.
I had never even seen a skate board before.”
The man then called the police, who rushed him to hospital and rushed him home.
But the accident left him with severe injuries.
The accident happened just days after a skateboarding accident that left a man dead in Mumbai.
The police are yet to determine the cause of the accident.
The accident also left the man’s skateboard, a $700 Yamaha R1, with no repair, and it has not been returned to him.
“My family has taken care of the bike.
I don’t know if I can get it back.
But I’m going to do everything in my power to get it,” said Mohammad.
