A 19-year-old man crashed into the guardrail of a bridge after losing control of his motorcycle on a mountain road in Chiayi County yesterday, and plunged 15 meters into a boulder-strewn stream bed below.

Fortunately, the man landed on a discarded mattress, and survived the fall with only minor injuries, including a busted knee, and a mild concussion.

At around 5:00pm, Mr Cheng (程 ), 19, was riding a heavy motorcycle on Provincial Highway 3 (Inner Mountain Highway), in Chiayi County’s Zhongpu Township, when he lost control of his vehicle while rounding a bend, and crashed into the guardrail of the Yougu Bridge.

While the guardrail stopped Cheng’s motorcycle, Cheng flew over the guardrail and fell 15 meters into the stream bed.    [FULL  STORY]
