Kayaker Tyler Bradt Injured on Oregon's Abiqua Creek

We're wishing Tyler Bradt the best. According to his Facebook page, he injured his spine on Oregon's Abiqua Creek yesterday. Bradt's L1 was pulled apart and he has surgery in the morning. The surgeon says he can expect 12 weeks of recovery time. "I'll be back on the river sooner than later," he wrote on his Facebook page. You can watch Bradt breaking the world record for the highest waterfall run in a kayak here.  For more information on kayaking waterfalls, check out Grayson Schaffer's story The Evolution of Whitewater Kayaking.
