Other information
ELECTRIC SHOCK
In 2013 he suffered burns to almost 50% of his body after he climbed up on a train and received an electric shock. He says that the accident changed his perspective on life and made him more responsible. "I have heard from the others. I do not remember the noise. But I remember that my clothes were on fire. I stopped moving. I was trying to roll down the train, but my body was heavy. This accident suddenly put some perspective on my life. I have grown up and have figured out what matters to me. I still think extreme sports are fun, but I have a lot more focus on safety." (bt.dk, 22 Sep 2018; Athlete, 13 Nov 2014)
