Removing Blood Stains (Somewhat Graphic)
Quote | Reply
 

I had an accident a week or so ago and this weekend get to clean it up. Lots of blood stains on the garage floor and the bicycle. I suspect a power washer for the floor will remove most of the stains and simply washing the bike will remove most of the stains also. I guess replace the chain?. Any other suggestions? Thanks.

Before any suggestions... the story as to what happened is definitely a must.

did you put a finger in your chainring and just keep pedaling or what?? Sorry that there's an accident that big, it either must have been painful for you or whatever small mammal was victim.

Simple Green is probably one of the cheapest options to cleaning that up by the way. Slosh it around everywhere and wipe it with a mop/wet towel.

No need to replace the chain unless there are bone fragments in it that just won't come out...

Wow...that is some serious blood splatter...we need a picture of what spilled all that! Either a gnarly wound or an area with extreme blood flow that just gushed (head???).

Hydrogen peroxide. Buy a bulk bottle. It reacts with the blood and will loosen it. May require several applications.

OK, my guess is his hand must have slipped into the fan. blood's directly under the front of the fan, and it looks like it sprayed onto his bike.

Based on the pooling of blood on his arches, my guess would be some sort of colon bleed dripping down legs. My wife thinks it is BS. She is a surgical nurse and said the kitchen stuff looked weird, like blood running down the inseam, hence my hypothesis.

Big bottle of hydrogen peroxide for inside the house like the OP said and a big bottle (or a few big bottles ) of old school coke on the pavement in the garage. Pour it on the concrete and let it sit. It will disolve the blood.

When I was stationed in CA that is what the CHP officers used on the pavement after motorcycle road pizza accidents. I asked them why they bothered cleaning up blood stains off the highway as when left alone time and eventual rain will do it. They said that the stains distract drivers adn some drivers even swerve to avoid driving on them and cause more accidents.

OH and lets hear the story and see pictures of some stitches.

The garage pictures by me after coming home from surgery a few days later. My wife cleaned up the house, I get to clean the garage. As I was alone, I went inside to get my insurance card. No idea why I went to the kitchen sink. The dog did lick some of it and then tracked it over the house also!

The accident happened on the trainer, I called for help using the cell phone, walked inside for insurance card and to put up the dog. Walked back outside, closed garage door and waited on front porch. EMS arrived 11 after my call.

One of my old co-workers / riding buddies in CO did this. His seatpost snapped and he went back onto the rear wheel and completely shredded his taint. He had to ride home and by the time he got there, his chamois was a blood-filled diaper. As a result of all the patching / healing that had to go on, he was on laxatives for weeks. A solid dookey would have ripped everything apart again.

I think it's pretty obvious that you stopped to make a sandwich. After a workout and that much blood loss, most triathletes would have nutrition in mind.

I'm guessing he was riding a bike with no seat for some reason (breakage or dumbassery) and the seatpost took a core sample.

A few years back there was an incident of drunken BMX riding I partook in. One seat broke off but people were still riding it. I refused, because in my drunken state all I could think of was that seatpost taking a 1" diameter sample of things I'd rather not have sampled.

Ambulance services are NOT covered under Provincial Health Care. They expect you to get there on your own apparently. And then you have to pay for parking when you get there. Oh, and an Ambulance is a few hundred dollars and in my case that was only for 3 blocks. Fortunately, I have extra insurance coverage which covered it.

If these are his daughter's foot prints, where are the drops of blood coming from? Is she carrying OP's bloody colon??? No longer buying it.

But I agree, love the tile.

It is my blood, my daughter photographed the inside blood with her cell phone when she came over to feed the dog for us later that evening. I had socks on when the accident happened. I had surgery about 1:30 AM the next morning. The garage pictures were taken by me with my Canon camera a few days after I got home. When the accident happened I knew it was bad. I had hold the open wound closed with my right hand, whenever I moved it away, blood gushed. Memories of those first aid classes are still here, apply pressure.

To all: thank you for the kind words, I am recovering. Most of the responses have been very entertaining I must say. Perhaps back to work on Tuesday. I have contacted an attorney and upon his OK I will share how this happened. See you at Ironman Texas!

I'm always fascinated by the "attention whore" approach to posts like what the OP offered. Post some graphic pictures and say the story is coming later. Follow that up with some more graphic pictures and then another teaser that more details are forthcoming. Just post the damn information!

I have a friend that posts little things on facebook like "I have BIG news!" and then takes a couple of days to post the news. I think they just get off on everyone sending them messages and posting questions.

My take is that it's either bullshit and the OP is still making up the story, or the OP just loves the attention this is getting.

Screw what the lawyer says. You can at least say in general what caused the "injury".

If it is real, I'm thinking a snapped off carbon seat post stabs the OP in the femoral artery or taint.

before i read any of the responses it seemed to me (knowing NOTHING of blood) that the blood by the bike and on the floor seemed awful red to be days' old blood.

but if the guy is lawyering up, then it behooves him to keep mum.

femoral artery is a HUGE blood conduit - he wouldn't be posting here (unless he is a GHOST!!! and that is why it is taking so long to get the story - he can't move earthly objects and has to inhabit the body of a live person to type on the keyboard???

Yup, I'm taking the bullshit approach until we get the entire story.

I will tell you though that when I was riding the trainer this morning I did glance down at my carbon seat post and say a little prayer.

I have fractured toes walking in the dark, in my house... kids left a heavy toy in the middle of the hall for my toes to play with.
But... aa.. Did you sleep-walk into your garage?

If you were riding your trainer... and did this. ...please pull out the video camera when you decide to step up your game to the rollers.
...And try not to get a Darwin-Award in the process.

If the accident didn't kill me... tracking the blood through the house, like this,... my wife would kill me.

Aside from that... hope you heal fast for ironman... looking forward to hear what happened.

Clearly BS. The topic starter opens a topic to ask how to remove blood stains. He gets some recommendations but never responds to any of the suggestions (like, "thanks - I'll try that' or "tried it but didn't work").

Also if he would have had a serious accident he'd call the topic something about the serious accident, not about removing blood stains.

Then he goes on to not provide any detail but trying to keep this topic going letting the fools beg for more...

A couple more for your viewing pleasure:







could someone explain the foot print pattern. They seem to show the victim taking a step in one direction as if they were heading straight and then the next step with opposite foot seems to go in a different direction. This seems weird because barefoot and bloody on a tile floor wouldn't the foot print show smearing from slipping? Yet all the footprints seem to be uniform with one exception.

I'm going to go with "sliced right groin due to carbon saddle rail failure".


1. Piece of saddle rail on floor, next to Computrainer power block, on left side of bike.


2. Blood on right side of bike, and more blood in right footprints than left.


3. OP says that he had to hold wound closed with right hand (OP could not do this is it was a colon injury).


I posit that the saddle failed to the left and the right rails sliced the hell out of OP's right groin/thigh and he almost bled out. Rail shape looks suspiciously like a Dash, but don't hold me to that.

At first I was thinking that no way was that the power cord because it appears to just end, and it's bigger than a Computrainer power supply cord. But I guess it could be looped in a way that the pic is showing it from the side view so it looks bigger because it's doubled up.

Ok, new theories:
1. OP's under the saddle CO2 cartridge exploded.
2. OP mishandled his Glock while training with Sufferfest videos.
3. OP's crappy QR seatpost design failed and ripped open his taint.
4. Same as 3 but said crappy design caused saddle rail to break and he borked himself while halfway clipped in.
5. I have no clue how it happened, but I'm going to stick with right-sided groin or scrotum (gasp!) injury.

My guess:

Wife found out you were banging the neighbor's daughter (hence why you contacted an attorney) who is 18-19 and is a first year college student who wanted to check the older man box on her to do list. And when I say to do I mean literally to do as you found out. The wife confronted you while you were doing vo2 max intervals. (smart woman btw since it'll be harder to get stopped and out of the way + you'll bleed out faster due to higher HR). she didn't think it through all the way due to rage. Instead of getting a 10 inch kitchen knife she grabbed a pairing knife, 4 inch max. She confronts you and as you're trying to explain and get off the bike the wife attacks! She slashes you in the groin nearly severing the jewels that were recently banging against the neighbors daughter. But she slashes you a few times before she slips on some blood that has splattered out & hits her head on the post tension concrete floor knocking herself out. You realize your wanker nearly got cut off then you realize you've got a couple of nice groin gashes. Since she's moaning and not out of excitement but bc she has a concussion you realize she's not springing up. You take off your shoes, call 911 and mosey into the house locking the door behind you AND putting a chair under the door handle. You then mosey out to the front porch wedging the front door shut from the outside just in case she got inside. Your lucky she didn't think of coming out the garage door.

Your neighbor who happens to be outside wants to chat with you about what happened and you calmly tell him you had a "bike crash" in your garage and that now isn't the time. you also let him know that you are going to hospital A when in fact you ask the paramedics to take you to hospital B (smart move bc hospital security isn't real security and women when upset well you've seen what they can do) The 18-19 yo, probably a fake blonde wearing heavy eye makeup and tends to dress somewhat between a punk rocker and a goth girl, is upset that your bleeding a lot. She's worried she may not get to check that box off again. The dad reads that scene completely wrong and thinks it's just bc you are bleeding which saves you from another beating. (you need to talk with that chick, but the reality is you should quit her, trust me punk rock/goth girls are trouble if my college experiences are an indicator)

You call it an "accident". I call it a woman scorned and call you lucky. Had she worn rubber soled shoes you'd be humping your weenie with just your 4th and pinkie finger but bc she slipped, got to love flip flops btw, you have your wanker and some cool scars in your groin region for the next door neighbor chick who you just can't quit (but should) to rub some ointment on.

BTW since the wife attacked you that's going to save you a decent chunk of money in the divorce. Always look on the positive side.

Truth of fiction?

I suspect a power washer for the floor will remove most of the stains and simply washing the bike will remove most of the stains also. I guess replace the chain?. Any other suggestions? Thanks.

I'm disappointed. I thought for sure this was going to be messy. Use some bleach on the garage floor and you will be good to go. If that doesn't work. Try pool chlorine. That's what we used I. The boxing gym. As for the bike any degreaser. Simple great is good but I think it is rough on aluminum or steel. Can't remember which so look it up. Bleach isn't good on aluminum either.

No it wouldn't. I could have three different accounts having a real time argument with each other easily. 1 on phone, 1 on tablet, and 1 on laptop. And, since they all use different internet access paths, IP's would be different as well, wouldn't even have to go through an anonymizer.

With that much and such red blood the only reasonable explanation would be saddle rail going into the adductor and severing one of the perforating arteries. Would be very deep to do so. Nasty. Hope OP will recover.

Apparently, he was in Spain today

http://www.aspworldtour.com/...unta-galea-challenge

Quote:
After a day of big rides and broken boards, Nic Lamb (USA) has won the Punta Galea Challenge, the first event of the Big Wave World Tour (BWWT) Northern Hemisphere window.

Conditions on the northern coast of Spain proved challenging in the early stages, resulting in some cringe-worthy wipeouts. But when the sun broke through and the tide drained out for the Semifinals, big scores started to drop. With the home crowd behind him, Natxo Gonzalez (EUK) won his Semifinal heat with a near-perfect heat total of 29.33 out of a possible 30 thanks, in part, to a 10-point ride.

The fireworks had only begun and the Punta Galea Final did not disappoint. A back-and-forth as Lamb and current BWWT No. 1 Makuakai Rothman (HAW) traded nine-point rides through the majority of the hourlong battle. After Rothman earned two nines, he seemed to be well on his way to his second event win of the season -- Rothman won the only other BWWT event thus far this season, the Billabong Pico Alto. But Lamb, in an impressive display of acrobatics, earned the event's second 10-point ride and took the come-from-behind win with the highest heat total of the event -- a near-perfect 29.77.

The garage pictures by me after coming home from surgery a few days later. My wife cleaned up the house, I get to clean the garage. As I was alone, I went inside to get my insurance card. No idea why I went to the kitchen sink. The dog did lick some of it and then tracked it over the house also!

The accident happened on the trainer, I called for help using the cell phone, walked inside for insurance card and to put up the dog. Walked back outside, closed garage door and waited on front porch. EMS arrived 11 after my call.

Story forth coming at a latter date.

Didn't read all the replies, but the kitchen footprints do not look like blood. I am not even so sure about the garage. The garage splatter pattern is odd though for any reason that readily comes to mind in term of bike trainer accident. In my line of work, I see a lot of blood every day and this looks a bit manufactured. I am sure that we have a slowtwitcher that works in forensic science that would know more than I though.

Up until today I would disagree with you, because I wanted to give OP the benefit of the doubt - and it seemed like a lot of work for a prank. But now I am seriously wondering since he has never posted any injury pics or follow up. If this is fake, it's epic!

As I think about it, I do doubt it more. First, who posts something this epic and then uses the question "how do I clean up the blood" as the conversation starter? Wouldn't it be more like, "look what happened to me holy crap lucky to be alive! BTW: any ideas how to clean this mess up?". When I put my skeptic cap on, THIS IS A JOKE / PRANK.

Wouldn't it be more like, "look what happened to me holy crap lucky to be alive! BTW: any ideas how to clean this mess up?". When I put my skeptic cap on, THIS IS A JOKE / PRANK.


If you google how to clean up blood stains there are many links that give great advice. Why go to a triathlon forum? It would be like going to an aviation forum after crashing your plane and asking "how do I straighten out crumpled aluminum?". Blood when it dries gets quite dark. Not bright red or purple.

I think a better analogy would be crashing your plane carrying a load of battery-operated vibrators and then going to an aviation forum asking, "How do I repair all these vibrators?"

I wasn't queasy until reading the replies about cracked carbon posts/seat rail impalement and guys sanding their taints off with the rear tire+no seat. BLAHHHH. But now I'm hooked. In for pics of the injury! Unless it's exploded testicles...

Cause has to be a seat failure or something if he's consulting a lawyer?

Ambulance services are NOT covered under Provincial Health Care. They expect you to get there on your own apparently. And then you have to pay for parking when you get there. Oh, and an Ambulance is a few hundred dollars and in my case that was only for 3 blocks. Fortunately, I have extra insurance coverage which covered it.

You guys need to move to the UK, everything is free here (except prescriptions if you're not unemployed, an OAP, or a child)

"Exploding Trainer Flywheels
posted by shirer on 1/25/2015 8:06:00 AM. Is anyone aware of a flywheel exploding on a trainer (Compu-Trainer).

I have been contacted by a person who had this happen. The flywheel just disintegrated. A piece of shrapnel went into him (surgery required). Pieces lodged in the wall, and a piece bent the trainer stand.

If you like you can send me an email or call me.

Thanks."

Wow. But that doesn't quite correlate with this.

The accident happened about 6:25PM Tuesday November 25, 2014. The footprints on the kitchen floor were taken by my daughter with her cell phone. The garage pictures by me after coming home from surgery a few days later. My wife cleaned up the house, I get to clean the garage. As I was alone, I went inside to get my insurance card. No idea why I went to the kitchen sink. The dog did lick some of it and then tracked it over the house also!

The accident happened on the trainer, I called for help using the cell phone, walked inside for insurance card and to put up the dog. Walked back outside, closed garage door and waited on front porch. EMS arrived 11 after my call.

Story forth coming at a latter date.

So you post a link to another forum when everyone has been questioning this specific thread on Slowtwitch. Even the thread on TXBRA is lacking any picures of what can actually back up any claims. Where are the pictures of the broken flywheel, where is the damage to the wall, where is the bent trainer?

I'm sorry, but this seems like a big lie to me.

Like I said ...

My personal theory is that daughter was doing some sort of crating project when she and hblake noticed that whatever red dye/paint she was using looked a LOT like blood, so they said to each other "Let's make a crime scene!"

They faked up some blood splats, made a trail of bloody footprints [since hblake is one of those who rides a trainer without sox] and ... presto!

Hope you're healing up. If it's of any consequence, I recently received an email from Racermate informing me of a recall and replacement offer for the blue flywheel equipped CT's. We have several of them and I'll be taking them up on the offer.

I thought that I had told the story. The zinc flywheel on the Computrainer exploded sending shrapnel flying. One piece went through the walls (inside and outside) of the garage. One piece, about 1 inch long went into my groin between the upper right leg and the cheek. It missed all my naughty bits.

I did reach a settlement with Computrainer.
