Swedish Dakar Annie Seel was fortunate on yesterdays stage in the grueling 2010 Dakar rally. Close to the 131 kilometer mark on the eight stage, a tomb turned up, just in front of Annie. A last call and Annie managed to let go of the bike, without falling down herself. To retrieve the motorcycle a helicopter, with racing director Etienne Lavigne, came to aid.
Annie was running on a 26th position on the eighth stage when the accident occured, and was able to continue the race once Eitienne Lavigne had brought it back.
The video photage show when the helicopter is bringing her bike back up.
