Raver broke his neck from raging too hard
Raver broke his neck from raging too hard and lives to tell the tale. If you didn’t know this before then now you do, it is possible to technically ‘break your neck’ without actually dying.
“Cervical vertebrae (neck bones) are the top 7 bones in the spinal column. These top 7 bones form the top part of our “backbone” and they also serve to protect the spinal cord from injury. If the vertebrae are broken or severely dislocated, but the spinal cord is unharmed, then no neurological problems result.” From Apparelyzed.com
A man named Dangelo Jimenez went at it so hard and crazy he had to be whisked off to hospital where it was found that he had damaged vertebrae in his neck.
The raver broke his neck at a Barely Alive dubstep show in Seattle. The pun is almost cringe worthy given the neck breaker’s unlucky circumstance.
Jimenez had then spent fifteen hours getting seen to in the emergency room and even took the opportunity to post his x-ray image to Facebook.
Barely Alive shared this post and have given the super fan guest list for life. Nothing says we are living in an age of social media when a raver broke his neck and he cannot wait to brag about it on Facebook, he even added some cute hashtags.
“After spending 15 hours in the emergency room I still think breaking my neck (literally) to Barely Alive’s set was totally worth it #PLUR #goodvibes.” Wrote Dangelo
Sure, tough guy. But we are going to guess that the vibes aren’t so good right now, given that he has a long road back to recovery. It’s really lucky that he didn’t hurt himself more seriously.
As headline worthy as ‘raver broke his neck at a party’ might be, it certainly is a not so smart way of enjoying yourself. No guest list could be worth that.
