LEHIGH ACRES, FL--A motorcyclist who was pinned under a car and fighting for his life a month ago is now back home recovering. As Marc Clark was laying lifeless under the vehicle a group of men miraculously lifted the car off of him. For the first time he is exclusivley telling WINK how his life has changed.
"I don't remember leaving the house and I don't remember trying to come home," said Marc Clark.
45 year old Marc Clark can't recall a single detail from the day that changed his life.
"All I remember is waking up in the hospital with poles in my leg and staples in my hip," said Clark.
On January 9th, Clark was riding his motorcycle down Alabama Street in Lehigh Acres when, police say, a car struck him turning in to the Vista Palms Apartments. the impact forced Clark to bump in to another car which threw him to to ground and as he was laying in the street, a third car ran him over and pinned him underneath.
"I started screaming, we gotta flip this car. we need to get the man out," said Samaritan Jeffy McClain.
McClain saw the whole thing and was one of five guys who lifted the car off Clark which ultimately saved his life. We told McClain today that Clark is back home and doing better.
"It is really cool that he is at home, it is a good feeling. You don't know how good of a feeling it is," said McClain.
"Thank God there are still people like that in this world. Because otherwhise I would have been dead underneath the car and that would have been it," said Clark.
The accident left Clark with a shattered ankle, broken hip and five broken vertibre, but he says none of that matters because he can live another day.
"Makes you appreciate the relationships you have more and the friends you got, the family you got," he said.
Clark says riding his motorcycle was a huge part of his life.
"It was everything; I rode everywhere, all the time. rain, shine, hot cold-it didn't matter," said Clark.
But it does matter now and Clark says the bike is history.
"Go with a car or truck,something safer" said Clark.
