Duncan, British Columbia – A man has posted a video to YouTube showing rescue workers using the Jaws of Life to extract him from a car crash in Duncan, British Columbia back in January.

Andrew MacDonald posted the video to YouTube on February 22nd. In the description, he says he blacked out behind the wheel and hit a pole while driving 60 kph (or about 37 mph.)

He says he suffered a broken right arm, broken left femur, two broken kneecaps, and two broken ankles. He had to spend a month in the hospital and undergo 14 hours of surgery, where he received many metal plates and screws to put him back together.

Despite the trauma, he seems to be in surprisingly good spirits as rescue workers worked to free him from the mangled car.

Andrew claims he was not under the influence of any alcohol or drugs when he crashed.
