American Eric Jackson has been a professional sportsfisker since 1997, and he has therefore experienced a bit of each during the fishing competitions.
7. January he had to have an experience, as he probably would have been, in addition, writes the Daily Mail.
the 54-year-old sportsfisker was about to launch his boat and make ready for a bit of training prior to his participation in a Fishing League Worldwide tournament in Texas, as it is all in a matter of seconds went horribly wrong.
the boat trailer was hooked behind on Eric Jackson's motor home, which is therefore kept close to the water's edge. He was about to release the boat when it suddenly felt as if the whole world was moving.
- I thought that I was about to faint, the boat came against me, says Erick Jackson for the Daily Mail.
I looked back, I saw the mobile home danger out in the water and be about to run me over.
Eric Jackson rushed therefore into autocamperens cab and put the foot on the brake, but before he could reach it, was already halfway out in the lake, and within stood the water up in the ankelhøjde.
Over in the corner of the cab sat Eric Jackson's dog Bodi at the same time, and then very guiltily out, with good reason. It was Bodi who caused the accident, as it put his head out of the window in order to keep up with what its owner had to walk in.
In this context, came in fact to hit a button that puts the vehicle in reverse, and therefore, the rolled mobile home, from new of cost Erik Jackson of 180,000 dollars, or approximately 1,17 million dollars in the water.
With the help of eyewitnesses to the accident, was a mobile home back in the country in the course of ten minutes, but the damage has already been done.
- the Gearbox was full of water, the electrical circuit is cooked. It does not start, it is running nowhere, says Eric Jackson.
It was, however, no time to take care of in the situation. Eric Jackson had namely training for its fishing competition.
- It is a big tournament that costs 5000 dollars to be in. There was nothing I could do at the moment, the boat was already in the water, so I hopped in my boat and fished the rest of the day.
Jackson and his family are now back in the home state of Tennessee, but the mobile home they had to leave in Texas.
Just waiting for the unfortunate fisherman to hear whether the vehicle is totalled or can be repaired. He expects, however, that the first.
