Before the Los Angeles Dodgers played in Milwaukee, David Vassegh thought it would be a good idea to take a ride on the slide.
It did not go as planned.
The Dodgers television and radio reporter broke two bones in his wrist and six ribs when he crashed into the padding at the end of his slide at "Bernie's Chalet." There is a giant, white slide.
Vassegh said he would learn not to do his own stunts from now on.
The host of "Dodger Talk" on Dodgers radio broadcasts, Vassegh also works as a reporter on Los Angeles Dodgers broadcasts. He went down the slide twice about 4 hours before the Dodgers game.
He was filmed at the top of the slide before. He was able to get footage of him coming down.
The problem happened at that time. Vassegh's arm hit the padding.
Vassegh said that the time went fast. The second time it was slick. At the end, it got out of control.
Vassegh was back at work by the fifth game. Vassegh had his arm in a sling as he conducted an interview with Barnes.
Barnes told Vassegh that it was for him. We all rallied around you after you had an accident on the slide.
Vassegh was back at work on Thursday, but he will need surgery when he gets home. He said he had received a lot of text messages from his friends and teammates.
Vassegh said that it had been an "outrage of support."
