After the initial news that Michael “shroud” Grzesiek had been involved in an accident on his scooter which required surgery, more news has helped hit home just how severe the accident was and could have been.
shroud’s friend, roommate, and fellow streamer Justin “Just9n” Ortiz provided fans with more details during his most recent broadcast to Twitch.
“He hit the brakes too hard, and he flew over the handle bars about 10 to 12 feet, on to the asphalt. Now, being Mike, he’s looking out for his right arm, he fell on his left arm – all of his weight. He got a bunch of ‘road rash’ from about his hip down to the middle of his thigh, it’s all purple and blue, all fucked up,” just9n explained.
If that wasn’t enough for you to believe this incident was a serious one, just9n went on to say shroud had “put a huge hole in his elbow, and from what I understand, he tore a ligament and removed a piece of the bone from the elbow. So, they need to go in and reattach that bone. I think the bone might have been fractured as well.”
While shroud escaped with some damage, just9n believes it could have been much, much worse.
“This man could have easily just died, I don’t know if you guys understand the severity of what I’m saying, but he could very literally just not be here with us right now, because of how serious this fall was.”
