Cyclist hospitalized in Argentina after falling directly into large cactus

That’s one thorny situation.

An Argentinian cyclist was reportedly hospitalized after taking a spill and landing right into a large cactus.

Footage of awful aftermath out of Buenos Aires shows large swaths of the prickly plant sticking out of the cyclist, identified by local media as Diego Moreno, The Sun reported.

“I didn’t see a small crater in the asphalt and I hit the pothole,” recalled Moreno, who was riding with two others cyclists at the time, the report said.

Moreno said his injuries could have been worse if not for his protective gear.

“Thank god I was wearing glasses and a helmet and I didn’t injure my face or head,” he said.

“Because the way the spines got embedded in me, it could have blinded me.”
