On October 15, Kevin Diepenbrock and Phillip Polito, his riding companion and co-worker at a natural gas plant near Philadelphia, were thrown more than 100-feet down a rocky embankment after their motorcycles collided. Polito, who was just 29, was killed in the crash.

As for Diepenbrock, the 41-year-old would survive, but only after thinking his life was over. Diepenbrock was flung down the road, more than 100 feet down an embankment, out of the sight of other motorists. However, 30 hours later, Diepenbrock was saved. He suffered two punctured lungs, 17 breaks in 12 ribs, and multiple spinal fractures.

On Monday night at the University of Tennessee Medical Center, Kevin watched the videos for the first time.
