KHQ - Former Navy SEAL Matt L'Hommedieu, 46, is lucky to be alive and now has an incredible story of survival after crashing his motorcycle off a remote trail in Skamania County. The crash left him helpless, stranded, and unable to move. A couple hiking nearby saw L'Hommedieu's bike laying next to an embankment and were curious enough to make sure everything was okay. That's when they found L'Hommedieu about 30 feet down an embankment, bloody, in and out of consciousness, with multiple broken bones.
