Michael Henao is a lucky man. You can argue that he’s insane, sure. Perhaps an idiot too. What else would you call someone who encounters a flood and tries to cross it? But, ultimately, he’s a lucky insane idiot who survived a suicidal — and failed — stunt.

In early September 2013, Colorado suffered severe damage from a historic flood event. In an attempt to cross a flash flood, Michael Henao loses control and possession of his motorcycle. Nearly 2 weeks later, Michael was able to recover his bike and begin the rebuilding process.

It gets really bad at one point. Lucky man indeed.
