Following a near brush with death, George Eaton remains shaken but motivated to tell his story so that others might learn from his harrowing experience.
“On May 8 about 2:30 in the afternoon, my friend Craig McCaslin and I decided to go four-wheeling at Jameson Place in Whiting,” he explains. “Anyway, Craig’s carburetor blew up so he went to Gardner’s Lake to get it fixed. So I went on alone, and I made two mistakes right then. I went alone, and I didn’t wear a helmet.”
