OCALA, Fla. — A Florida man said he’s lucky to be alive after he was clotheslined off his dirt bike by what he called barbed wire while he was out riding in a state park.
Scott Johnson told WFTV he was riding in Ocala National Forest earlier this month when he was knocked off his bike. He looked up, expecting to see a tree, but instead saw the wire strung between two trees at neck height. “It was a millimeter or two away from death, so I do consider myself very lucky,” Johnson told WFTV.
In a Facebook post, Johnson shared pictures of his neck after the incident, which show large bloody cuts.
