Incident Details

January 1, 2006 Location of the incident: , Type of Incident:

Pilot is new at doing forward in no-wind conditions. Multiple attempts to launch and a heavy wet wing which eventually led to a line hitting the prop. Somehow I was twisted to the right and left A riser, which was still in my hand, got caught in the prop. Bending the cage and breaking the prop the riser was ripped out of my hand and made a deep cut on thumb and finger. Went to E-room to make sure nothing was broken. Bones are okay. My hand is really swollen and I have 2 stitches in thumb. Other than that Im okay.
