LUZERNE COUNTY, PA (WBRE)  A Pennsylvania man is recovering from injuries he suffered when he encountered a booby trap while riding a bike on Luzerne County’s Back Mountain Trail. 

Dave Bass says while he was injured, he knows it could have been much, much worse.

“I was stunned when it first happened. I didn’t know what to expect,” Bass said. “At the last minute, I saw what I thought was a dangling downed power line, something like that and then boom, I hit a rope. Somebody had tied a rope across the trail from a tree to a large rock. It caught my bike and flipped me to the ground real hard. I hit my head and crashed on top of the bike.”

He suffered numerous injuries.

“Shoulder, elbow, both sides. Bruised ribs. I had x-rays today,” Bass said.
