Whyte won’t let whip from wave wipe her out


Confession, this story got through here mostly because of the title. Happy that this is not a podcast, right now. Via WinonaDailyNews.com:

As the boat busted through the lake water, the second wave turned out to be a doozy.

So much so, it would change the next three months of Morgan Whyte’s life.

“We hit the second wave and I twisted backward, still holding onto the thing (tube),” Whyte said. “I kind of got whipped off. I didn’t feel anything.

“People ask me if I heard it crack or anything. I didn’t hear anything. I thought it was fine, then I looked at my (right) arm and it was moving back and forth. You could see the broken bones (pushing at the skin). It was gross.”
