Man Pulled off Motorcycle by Low-Hanging Wire in Northeast Ohio

An amazing survival story comes from Bath Township, Ohio. The police was stunned a 63-year-old man, who got pulled off a moving motorcycle by a low-hanging wire, survived with minor injuries.

The crash happened around 7:45 a.m. Wednesday in Bath Township, south of Cleveland.

“Initially when we received the call, we feared the worst — possibly decapitation,” Chief Mike McNeely said. “He suffered bruising from around his neck, but he was able to walk away from the accident amazingly.”

The rider was traveling westbound, and the sun and shadows apparently made it impossible to see the black line dangling close to the roadway.

During a 911 call, the man said it felt like “a rope burn” when he was pulled off the motorcycle.
