I'm starting this thread hoping someone can give an update to the sad and disturbing accident scene that has haunted my mind ever since.
At around 1PM yesterday (Sunday 9/22), I was making my way south on the The Strand at Dockweiler Beach in El Segundo when I came upon a crash that a witness said had happened 10-15 minutes before.
A fellow cyclist had been involved in a solo crash (unconfirmed), and looked like he landed hard on his face and broke his nose, causing him to struggle to breathe according the the witness. He subsequently lost consciousness and seemed to have gone into cardiac arrest.
The exact cause of the crash was not readily determined by the time I got there, but it was right then that lifeguards started arriving at the scene and began to render CPR on the guy.
Soon afterwards, the medics also arrived at the scene and started taking over, and began clearing everyone from the scene.
I hope they were able to save him.
If someone else has any details or updates on his condition or the crash, please share them here.
My prayers and heart go out to the cyclist as well as his girlfriend/wife who was understandably in tears and quite distraught at the scene...
