Omniscience is still lacking in those who know the most among us. Let's give the guy a break, and take a neutral approach, since neither we, nor he, had all of the facts, and be glad the guy is OK. The situation could have been much worse, for all involved. Compassion is a good approach, in any situation.
Did anyone stop to think, if only for a second, that might have been Wild Cowboy?

Dang, things are getting dangerous.
One of the things folks should think about, when they are having fun at this guys expense, what if he were having a heart attack? Do you know what it feels like? If you feel the fatigue this guy felt, will you keep walking into a deadly heart attack because you don't want to have the folks on whiteblaze laughing at ya? Something to think about.
Rock, I know he didn't. My concern was for the next guy. The guy reading this thread that is in real trouble sometime in the future. Most folks would rather have an ass whippin rather than have rescue come and get them. Put public ridicule on top of that and someone could be in trouble. Just a thought
He said he wasn't hurt, and they didn't take him to the hospital. They took him to a hotel.
If he had had a heart attack, it would have been sad, but it would not been surprising.
If he had a heart attack all he needed was a Shakalee Shake.]
