Two days ago I experienced the heaviest day of my life. I was set up to the right of the cliff where our main group was & on the opposite side of the cove. Right after Chase sent his gainer, I was looking through my photos & heard rocks breaking/rolling. I looked up to see Travis falling from Leap of Faith(100ft) with rocks around him. He hit the cliff near the bottom making an indescribable sound & bounced into the water unconscious & face down. @chaseasuncion, @stefanbabylon & @eddy.would.go swam to his aid without hesitation, throwing him onto the paddle board that we had. I didn't have cell service so I kept yelling to the tourist to call 911 & many of them got right on it. I packed up my bag & ran along the cliff to go meet the boys at the bottom of Spitting Caves. I left my bag on the top of Spitting Caves & rushed down to the bottom. Luckily no one stole my bag or my phone that was on the ground. Once they brought Travis to the waters edge, the boys timed the waves to help us bring Travis onto the reef ledge. I will never forget the worried look on everyone's faces as we tried to do everything we could to make the situation better. I helped drag the board onto the rocks with him on it & that's when I saw how serious things were. He was talking & starting to regain consciousness so I knew that was a good sign but he was still in pretty bad condition. We were talking to him to keep him calm & told him that everything would be alright. I took off my shirt to put behind his head after seeing something white from the cut on his head which might have been his skull. @micahniinuma threw down his shirt to me also because of all the bleeding. We stabilized him and moved him to dry ground. I went back up the cliff to wait for the emergency personnel to tell them where we were. After all of this he only suffered 9 broken bones, full body abrasions, a confusion and is recovering at home. This was truly a miracle. A GoFundMe link is in my bio to help him out! I'm thankful for the crew we had on Sunday. This whole ordeal has truly put the value of life into perspective for me. Live life doing what you love cause you never know when it will be your last day.
Everybody please pray for @traviseichner. He had a freak accident and fell 100ft onto rocks then was unconscious in the water. Thank God for the paddle board and all the boys that had no hesitation to react. I met @chaseasuncion and the boys to help pull him onto the rocks. He was talking and conscious but we were just trying to keep him calm. Don't know how he's doing now but please pray for him and that he has a speedy recovery #prayfortravis
Travis is at the hospital and is able to move his hands and feet. He's going for a CAT scan soon. Glad he's doing better from when we saw him but still keep him in your prayers🙏🏾
As some of you may know, my drone malfunctioned last year & fell in the water. This was such a big loss to me financially. The drone was a great tool to help me do what I love & what I'm passionate about! I hope to soon make a living doing what I enjoy and love.
My goal is to raise $800 to purchase a new drone. Getting a new drone would mean the world to me. More info is on my @GoFundMe page in my bio @EvanYamashiro! Please share this & and donations are greatly appreciated🙏🏾Thank you everyone!
2016 had its ups & downs from getting surgery on both of my legs that ruined my summer too meeting so many amazing people & learning so many new things. The adventure with friends have been sketch and crazy but epic. It's definitely been a great year to say the least. Thank you to all my friends & family that made this year memorable! Love all you guys! Hope everyone has a safe, successful, memorable & Happy New Year! Can't believe another year is gone...
