Pittsburgh, PA Southside trail May 30th..if you know anything please PM/ reply to me

This is for the person or anyone else that saw anything on Wednesday May 30, around 630ish...

I was found unconscious by a roadie on the Southside trail. This gentleman definitely knew what to do(I believe he was an EMT) and I believe he really helped me, maybe even saved my life.

I donít remember ANYTHING. All I remember is waking up on the trail looking up at this biker. Please if anything one knows ANYTHING about what happened to me on the Southside trail please PM me or reply

I was riding a blue and white specialized Allez Sport, and was wearing a sortof spiderwebish red and black jersey.

I'm sorry I can't help you (I'm on the other side of the state and don't ride in Pittburgh), but please tell us that you got medical attention! Clearly, you lost consciousness, which indicates that you had a traumatic brain injury (even if only a concussion). I hope you're OK and can find the Good Samaritan who helped you- we should all be so lucky to have one when needed, and we should all be so ready to help if called upon.

All the best

Yeah, this person called 911. It turns out that I had a small Intracranial Hemorrhage (i think thats what they called it). I can't drive for two weeks, just in case. I am supposed to go back and have a follow up CT scan before I am allowed to drive again.

Wow! I can't help you on your search, but I'm glad to hear about the good samaritan, and the help they provided. I used to ride that trail almost daily when I lived in Pittsburgh.

I'm glad it wasn't worse, and I wish you a speedy recovery!
