Thrown from snowmobile...snow angels intervene

Much appreciation to maryjane31 and DynamicDbytheC for help creating this sixer. A couple years ago, I was on the back of a snowmobile. My friend was driving, easily doing 60 MPH on a straight path. When we got to a huge open field, my friend decided at the last minute to pull a stupid ass stunt and quick turn without me knowing that she was about to turn. Well when she turned, my body still had the momentum of going the other way. I flew off and did a couple of rolls from the speed. My friend, must have not realized that I fell off, because she kept going! A man who witnessed me falling off, came to my rescue and was relieved when I wasn't hurt. Just another example of my angels working over time for me...
