Sounds like he's recovering well, but that's some scary stuff.

In a very small-world moment, it looks like fellow attackpointer Jim Driscoll was the guy who helped him to the finish line!

Yikes! Glad Ari is OK. Great job by the other two. It's not often that APer photos hit the mainstream news!

It's not usually that hot this time of year in Minnesota, so people aren't used to it. Being very cautious by cancelling.
