Jan Lamprecht Fell Off His Roof - Please Pray For Him

Hi folks,

Just wanted to post a quick notice here. Jan Lamprecht (the brilliant author of Hollow Planets: A Feasibility Study) recently fell off his roof and had to call an ambulance. These are the notices he sent yesterday:

This is a quick note. About an hour ago I fell off a roof while investigating a water leak in one of my buildings. I am waiting for an ambulance.

Just a quick note. I eventually got to the hospital, but it took maybe 2 hours. The ambulance never came so I got a neighbour to take me. The ambulance arrived after I'd been an hour at the hospital.

Anyway, I was stitched up and they did a CT scan and discharged me.

I've been home for a couple of hours and just taking it easy.

I had a big cut right across the top of my head from the fall. I'll post the photos later today.

I fell at least 8 feet. My feet were at least 8 feet off the ground. I'll explain later what happened and why. I will measure it later this week.

Amazingly, no broken bones. Just a very sore neck and a big long cut across the top of my head.

I probably was unconscious for a short time after I hit the ground.

I just want some more rest and then I'll post the photos later.

Another Boer, a former Advocate, said to me I am extremely lucky to not have broken bones. Others my age have fallen and for them it was a big issue.

I fell backwards, probably hitting the ground feet first going backwards and then backlashing into the ground.

Please pray for Jan Lamprecht to make a full recovery and be able to afford his medical bills. He's an extraordinarily brilliant author and has been the leading scientific voice for the Hollow Planets model for decades. It would be a horrific loss if his gifted mind were to leave us over an abrupt accident like this. He still has plans for Hollow Planets-related activities, although he has been distracted with other concerns in recent years.

@Western0bserver Thanks for posting these. Very horrible stuff. He said he almost lost his fingers too, were it not for an unconscious reaction on his part to let go of the ladder. He's incredibly lucky to be alive and that the situation isn't worse. But I truly hope he hasn't suffered brain damage or other latent issues.

Absolutely horrific. He's remarkably blessed to be alive after that. That looks incredibly serious and I'm shocked it did not at least fracture his skull - or worse!

Really hoping he recovers from this soon ! I am sure he still has plenty of insights to share with the world.

@sidharthabahadur @SilverMoon Apologies for the delay in responding here. Very busy with work this past week. He's been steadily recovering and fortunately the damage does not seem quite as serious as I'd initially feared. I don't want to give away too many potentially private details, but it seems he received a mild type of concussion. Aside from that, the damage has been fairly minor and he has been slowly noting signs of progress. He's been to several doctors and specialists who are helping him recover along steadily. Of course, he's being very careful with tasks around his house going forward. Continued prayers for the progression of his recovery would of course be truly appreciated.

Also, he had the staples removed about two weeks ago now. I have some additional pictures of before the staples were removed and you can see some slow healing, but he sent these pictures privately and so I don't know if I should post them right on this public thread...
