Man On Cellphone Casually Avoids Disaster

A spectator talking on a cellphone while watching motocross riders take turns jumping over a muddy creek gave evidence contrary to the popular belief that talking on a cellphone is a distraction.

One rider jumped the creek, lost his balance on the landing, and started to slide his motorcycle toward the man on the cellphone. Clearly the spectator was paying close attention as to what was occurring right before his eyes, otherwise he wouldn’t have been able to do this

The man on the cellphone paused his conversation just long enough to jump over the sliding motorcycle and avoid disaster. Spectators behind him were saved by the tree, which stopped the motorcycle so they didn’t have to jump over it.

Meanwhile, the man on the cellphone continued as if nothing happened.

The incident occurred during a Grand National Cross Country event at Powerline Park in St. Clairsville, Ohio, where mud and bloopers are apparently synonymous, particularly at the creek jump, which attracted a large crowd.
