'“The guy was bleeding, he had head wounds where he had blood gushing on his face, he was spitting out blood, it looks like he had landed on his knees and he couldn`t get up,” said Alison McCoy who works next door at Premier Roofing and came running over moments after the accident. “They always have protective gear, helmet the whole shebang but nobody seemed to notice that this time,” said McCoy.

'FOX31 Denver’s Rob Lowe talked to Macomber by phone. The pilot said he landed on his head, has a broken jaw, 27 stitches, and was scalped on the right side of his head.

'Troy Widgery is the CEO of Jet Pack International and admitted Macomber wasn’t wearing a helmet at the time of the accident, “No, he should`ve been wearing a helmet but he`s so good and again this was just a test flight.”'
