OMG! See What Earphones Did To This Teenage Boy After An Accident. Graphic Photos
Posted On 24/12/2016
A teenage boy was nearly decapitated after his iPhone earphones wrapped around his throat and sliced deeply into his skin during a horrific motorbike crash. Bradley Willoughby, 16, was riding at his family’s Ravenshoe farm in far north Queensland when he landed a jump awkwardly and damaged the bike’s throttle.
The landing jammed the throttle and flung Bradley directly into a barbed wire fence – badly breaking and dislocating his ankle and slashing open his stomach. But the worst damage was done to his neck, with deep lacerations etched just centimetres from his trachea after his earphones latched onto the fence. Bradley’s father had to rip the earphones out from the cut inside his throat. Mrs Willoughby said at first she thought that her son was dying. Together with her husband she tried to keep Bradley calm as they waited for a Rescue 510 chopper to arrive and fly them to Cairns Hospital. Bradley stayed awake throughout the entire ordeal and required stitches for the cuts to his neck.
