Wpg Sun: Fong lucky to be alive, but back at Bisons camp

August 17, 2015 — 

Winnipeg Sun writer Kirk Penton shares a story from Manitoba Bison safety Tyler Fong who survived a death-defying fall from a 156-foot-tall waterfall near his hometown in Victoria, BC.

“I remember the whole thing,” Fong said. “I remember slipping, and then I bounced off the side of it a couple times at the beginning. That’s when I broke the rib, punctured my lung and got scrapes and what not. I ended up going head first for a little while.”
