Watch A Mercedes Race Car Nearly Decapitate A Crew Member With An Air Line

Autosport reports that one member of Mercedes' DTM pit crew remains hospitalized after nearly being decapitated by an air line during practice at Zandvoort on Friday.

From the report and this video above, it seems that when Ralf Schumacher was driving his AMG coupe out of the pit, his car's rear wing caught an air line, which whipped out and struck several members of the crew. Four people were initially hospitalized, but three have been released, according to Autosport.


The pit member who remains at the hospital has non-serious injuries, according to Mercedes. Still, the whole ordeal looks pretty painful.
