Auto shop owner applies tourniquet to motorcyclist's leg
A collision between a motorcyclist and an SUV last week left the motorcyclist with a severe leg injury, Laguna Beach police said.
Shortly before 7 p.m. Sept. 15, a Honda CRV cut in front of a Harley motorcycle and the rider hit the front end of the vehicle at Thalia Street and South Coast Highway, Lt. Jason Kravetz said.
Haik Fahi, owner of Auto Repair Laguna Beach, witnessed the accident and helped the victim, who was thrown from his bike. Fahi said the man's leg was severed between the knee and the ankle and was bleeding profusely. A former Air Force pilot, Fahi made a tourniquet with a wire to stop the bleeding.
