WATCH: Man films his final goodbye to family after a horrific crash

He said farewell on camera.

As much as we all talk about it, when it comes to your final minutes in life it's hard to know what you'd do.


Many say they want to die in the presence of their partner or extended family, but when it comes to that point none of us can predict how and when death will happen.

One man was left stranded, knocked off his motorbike after an awful accident and was forced to record his last minutes on his phone.

According to UNI LAD, 41-year-old Kevin Diepenbrock was riding his motorbike along the border of North Tennesee and Carolina when suddenly, his friend, Phillip Polito braked hard.

29-year-old Philip braked without warning which caused Kevin to collide with him, sending the pair of friends off an embankment which was over 50m high.


Unfortunately, Philip did not survive the crash but Kevin was left alive and unable to move on the bottom of the embankment, believing that he was going to die alone.

Unsure of what to do before he passed away, Kevin decided to say his final goodbyes to everyone he knew and loved in case he didn't get a chance to do it.

Lying down in the leaves with a bloodied face and tears in his eyes, Kevin bids farewell.

"Hey everybody, I f*cked up, that’s all I can really say. At about 10.30 this morning. Been laying here ever since. About 50ft down in the ravine.

"I just wanted to say I love you guys. Sorry I was being stupid, but you know that’s what I do."


But it turns out that Kevin's goodbyes were premature. Eventually, Kevin's cries for help were heard by a passing couple and he brought to hospital, 27 hours after the initial crash.

It's reported that Kevin has broken ribs, damaged his lungs and spinal fractures.
