Luchador Psicosis is reported to have saved a man from drowning in a car that flipped off the highway in a scary car accident.
CWE promoter Danny Duggan, a passenger in the shared his experience of what happened below.
"Early today (Wednesday) Robin Lekime, Psicosis, and myself were involved in a near fatal car accident on an Ontario highway that has all of us lucky to be alive right now.
Kirkland Lake was the destination but Mother Nature had other plans.With it being a one lane highway it becomes incredibly dangerous driving behind a semi in those conditions as it douses your car in rain and wet snow from its tires.
Looking to get out of this situation he waited until it was long and clear in the on coming lane to pass the truck but unfortunately we never got that far as the second he crossed the median, well before even excelling passed the truck the tires hit sheer ice and instantly started spinning my Monte Carlo in circles down the highway in the oncoming lane and instantly into the steep ditch where the velocity and depth narrowly missed a street sign before rolling over (i’m not sure if it was once or multiple times before crashing down upside down for the landing.
From here I remember after the initial crash having a split second to realize we are not only upside down but fully in a body of water. Panic sets in as you are hurt, upside down, can’t get your seat belt off and have no idea how to escape.
Literally in what had to be less than a split second I am almost completely underwater with just my nose, mouth, and surface of my face above water trying to breathe. I remember screaming in urgency that I was stuck and couldn’t get my belt off. Then something awful happens. In what felt like weight shifting in the entire car in what was either one of the boys getting out of the car or trying to get at me, now completely forces my side of the vehicle and me COMPLETELY under water.
The fight for my life was on as I am now desperately trying to get my head above water but there is no above water in that space and I’m literally grabbing anything and anywhere trying to post my head up and survive all while still fighting with this seat belt. The same seat belt that saved my life was now turning heel and costing me it.
I was stuck and quickly running out of air and had the realization and the hard reality as I was suffocating that “I am going to die. This is it”. As I was continuing to fight I felt someone put pressure on the seat. I believed it to be Psicosis from the mumbles I can hear under water. This offered JUST enough room for me to catch shorts breathes for what felt like seconds as i kept struggling in and out of water.
By no means do I consider myself a “tough guy” but I have been a few car accidents before, been in some bad fights, and have had scary situations like a “stinger” in a few matches where you get dropped on your head and lose feeling briefly in your hands and feet but never in my life have I felt the sheer terror of feeling completely helpless from the certainty that I was about to die. The most terrifying emotion I have ever encountered.
From here it is still a bit of a blur as I started to lose the ability to breathe and head back under water with my body physically giving up against the pressure of being under water unable to breathe.
I swear to god. What you always see in movies with your life flashing before your eyes is very real. Very fn real. As my struggle became weaker and weaker I no longer saw my surroundings but simply my smiling, beautiful baby, daughter as I started to cry under water at the vision of her and even now as I type this that I wouldn’t get to see her again, or see her grow up, and that she would have to grow up not really knowing or having a dad or the family she deserves. I’m crying again just replaying it as I type it. Literally the worst feeling I could ever imagine and one I couldn’t wish on anyone.
From there it is mostly a blur. I am not sure if I was unconscious or just in a state of shock but I have a very vague remembrance of Psicosis and Robin communicating to me as I was laying what felt like motionlessly in the ditch with my legs still in the water but drenched in water head to toe, shivering and unable to move."
