“You lied to me!” De la V said., and told him that when he saw the footage, he realized the seriousness of the matter. “These are times of great fear. I’m very adventurous, I like it, but the problem is being far away and fall into a guardian of a fairly rustic place…“, Bal began to tell and completed: “Imagine that in the local guard, you can be caught by a doctor who considers that you must cut your hand and I owe you…”, he illustrated.
“I was really scared,” he confessed, later recalling his greatest moment of “lucidity and reason” in the accident: when he saw his arm, the blood, the open fracture and that he calmly asked for a tourniquet to be done. “With a tranquility that I don’t even know where it comes from”he added.
