Jacket air-bag saves life of motorcycle rider


An air-bag motorcycle jacket saved Joseph McPhatter from serious injury after a wreck last September.

The WBALTV.com reports that McPhatter was thrown 100 feet and hit the ground at around 140 mph.

McPhatter was wearing air-bag jacket, which inflated and protected him from the force of the crash, leaving him with only minor injuries.

This is the first know instance where an air-bag style product has saved the life of a motorcycle rider.
