Landshark News & Chad Knight’s Eye

Milwaukee to Portland transplant Donovan Rice is now on 1031 and Landshark wheels

Chad Knight nearly lost his eye!

Thats right Chad Knight almost took his eye out skating recently.
Here is the story from Chad himself:

“On friday night I was filming at Syndrome for my “FKD rider of the week” segment. I fell on a ledge that runs next to a square railing, spun around and impaled my face into the end of the rail. I have an orbital fracture and 18 stitches. This sometimes requires surgery, to rebuild the floor of the eye socket, if the eyeball sinks in 2mm or if vision hasn’t returned to normal in 2 weeks. Mine is already about 70%, which is reassuring. The left half of my face is still completely numb though.

I attached some pictures so you can better understand the injury (one diagram is a before, the other, an after with the orbital bone broken and the optical nerve and muscle impacted into the sinus below. Same
with my CAT scan). If i had had my head angled an inch lower I would have lost my eye. I got f—king lucky with this one.”

Get well soon Chad!
