Injured motorcyclist lives to tell his story

John Humphreys lost his leg, not his spirit

SAN ANTONIOJohn Humphreys lost his leg when he was hit on his motorcycle while riding in San Marcos last May, yet throughout the traumatic experience, he remained amazingly calm.

“People say they have fight-or-flight mechanisms. I’ve never had that flight mechanism," Humphreys said.

He also said he told himself in the midst of everything, “I need to use my military training, get that tourniquet on and let’s just take it one day at a time.”

Humphreys said he’s also grateful to his girlfriend, Rebecca Fosdick, who was on her own motorcycle that day, for using her belt to apply the lifesaving tourniquet.
