It is Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Vilanueva who tells the press the details of the serious car accident of the American golfer Tiger Woods. "He was very lucky to survive the terrifying accident," was the comment of the most notable agent. The photos are eloquent and it was immediately clear that the seat belt and all the safety devices prevented a fatal accident. The former champion is hospitalized in serious condition, but he is stable. Woods was alone in the car and no other cars were involved in the accident. After being pulled out of the car by firefighters with an ax, he was hospitalized and underwent surgery due to serious leg injuries. Little was said about Tiger Woods' condition during the press conference held in Lomita, California, even under pressure from the champion's staff. "When I arrived he was lucid and calm, he didn't look in shock," the sheriff said. "While we were waiting for the intervention of the firefighters I asked him his name - he continued - and he told me that his name was Tiger. But I didn't recognize him immediately. He didn't seem under the influence of alcohol, of drugs or other substances, "added the deputy. Fire Chief Osby simply said Woods' injuries were not considered life-threatening, adding that "Woods was pulled out of the car by the windshield." First aid was provided by the Harbor Ucla Medical Center, prior to the transfer to the Ucla Westwood clinic. Vilanueva instead focused on the dynamics of the accident providing some minutia: "Woods was traveling at a speed higher than normal at the time of the accident, the car hit a curb and a tree". Since the reconstruction, the police have found no evidence of obstacles that could have caused the car to overturn. "The vehicle overturned several times. The road at that point is downhill and has several curves, that area has a high frequency of accidents." Barack Obama's wish "Never give up Tiger!", Is the wish of former President Barack Obama on Twitter in commenting on the serious car accident involving the golf champion. "Woods is the greatest of all time in golf, I wish him a quick recovery."
Even Donald Trump who called Woods "One of the greatest athletes in sports history, is a great person, a great boy. Tiger Woods is a global symbol of American excellence" - during the awarding of the Medal of Freedom in the Rose Garden at White House, the highest civilian honor in the US - released a statement to the press: "Get back Tiger soon, you are a true champion!".
