Jamie Mitchell fractured his sternum after suffering a wipeout in Puerto Escondido, Mexico. The Californian surfer-waterman got barreled on a giant right-hander, but the wave closed out. The surfboard eventually hit Mitchell in the chest, and he made it to the shore in agonizing pain. Jamie Mitchell couldn’t breathe or call for help, so he took a few waves on the head before the lifeguards reached him. According to the big wave rider, everything happened when he was trying to catch his last wave of the session.
