Matt Dubuisson thought he was going to die.
The Pass Christian 60-year-old had fallen some 25 feet from a tree stand. And when he hit the ground, he “felt and heard” bones breaking.
“I knew it was bad when I reached and felt my legs and couldn’t feel anything,” he said.
The impact fractured 12 ribs, his sternum and broke his back in three places. One vertebra shattered “like a brick that had been thrown against concrete.”
“After my CAT scan, they said my chance of walking again was not good,” he said.
