This incredible image shows Joe Peroceschi thrown from his boat, on the left you can clearly see one of his shoes
Who's this guy that seems to run on the water?
He is Joe Peroceschi, a professional speedboat driver, and these are the dramatic images showing how close to death he has arrived.
Remarkably, this man will walk again after flying out of his boat and then being hit by another.
Windy conditions caused his speedboat to flip during a Budweiser Drag Boat Nationals race this Sunday on Wappapello Lake in southeast Missouri, he was thrown from his boat, Smokin Joe, the force of being thrown forward makes it appear as though he is running across the lake, but he is actually about to be hit by his opposition's boat.
That was Poppa's Toy, driven by Rick Conklin of Ottawa, Illinois.
Peroceschi survived, and was fished from the water and rushed to hospital with a shattered pelvis.
