Renown KTN investigative reporter, Dennis Onsarigo, is admitted in hospital after he suffered injuries in a road accident.
A photo is doing rounds on social media showing Dennis bed-ridden with his arm held by a sling in hospital. He was fresh from a six hour surgery.
Saying he was happy that he was alive, the senior reporter noted that life was short and God had given him a second chance.
Dennis shared what happened revealing that an overlapping truck almost ran over him after he lost control of his bike on Saturday, October 7.
“I went riding a bike on Saturday.. I had done 23Kms one way when a truck left the main road on to my path wanting to overlap.
I decide let me outpace it because it will leave dust on me.. step on the peddle, look over my shoulder and the truck has now increased pace; step on the pedal again and the truck driver impatient now honks… glancing back for a third time …
The truck is literally inches of “breathing” from me.. I turn my head before I can leave the bicycle path, I lose control of the beast.. push over.
I land head first – thank God I had a helmet- then my shoulder, the landing force tosses me just a yard from the truck
“Screams from other motorists, the screeching slamming on brakes and now lost in dust, I can hear my own breathing..
I try lifting myself up, I can’t. A sharp pain on my collar bone, tells me I have fractured something.
Long story short, I survived a truck crashing me; it was a touching distance from where I lay.”
Mr Onsarigo narrated the events preceding his bike ride and wondered if God was passing a message. He wrote:
“Flashback: previous night a colleague had told me not to go riding after I told them I wasn’t sure about riding on that road…
That morning, I bought a new helmet and said a prayer.. something I rarely do when going biking.
As I was wheeled into the operating room for a six hour operation it hit me; life is short ..
When the surgeons dimmed the lights out of my life, I had died for six hours… what if I never returned?
Lucky to be alive; time I figured what this accident means.”
Quick recovery to him from Zipo.co.ke.
