Jeremy Lusk Video – Motocross Death

Freestyle motocross champion Jeremy Lusk died of head injuries Tuesday as a result of an earlier crash; he was 24. Lusk was riding in the X-Knights event in Costa Rica when he attempted to do a Seatgrab Indian Backflip and lost control of his bike.

After the crash Jeremy Lusk was taken to Calderon Hospital ICU in San Jose, Costa Rica where he was pronounced dead at 11:03pm. In the room with Jeremy when he died were his parents Chuck and Linda Lusk, his wife Lauren, and fellow Metal Mulisha riders Brian Deegan, Cameron Steele, Erik Apple, and Ryan Hagy.

Jorge Ramirez the Chief of the ICU at Calderon Hospital said Jeremy Lusk suffered from spine and brain damage.

“He was in a medicine-induced coma as a protective measure, and the medicine was being reduced to see how his body responded,” he said. “That didn’t mean he was going to wake up. He was in shock and that got worse last night, until he stopped responding and entered into cardiac and respiratory failure.” [Source]

Jeremy Lusk had a successful 2008 and his future in motocross looked promising, until his tragic death.

In 2008 Jeremy Lusk won the gold at the X Game FMX event, and the silver for best trick at Moto X. Jeremy Lusk was also named rider of the year by FMX, and appeared on the cover of TransWorld Motocross magazine in January 2009.

    He had the accident saturday and they put him into a drug induced coma to hopefully relieve the swelling of the brain which didnt happen. He died Tuesday am so the article was wrong.

    So many of my black women and men die in crimes at the hand of a WHITE man who is trigger happy and you people are tripping about how this biker/trickster died. He died alright – whether from the bicycle stunt or him crashing his head and becoming brain dead. Okay, Okay, I am being insenstive, but my main point is that we lose so many people daily and regardless of the faith how it happened, it’s another life lose. Get a f@@@n grip you WHITE PEOPLE
