Sun Sentinel: More on Tim Nicholls and his bicycle accident

Nick Sortal from the Sun Sentinel also has a video in his report. Nicholls was in a group of riders that crashed. Here's an excerpt from the article:
    Tim Nicholls, injured when a group of bicyclists slid on the remains of an alligator in Weston, is shown at his Pembroke Pines home on Friday, July 10, 2015. Nicholls has a brain injury that causes perceptive dizziness so he's unable to open his eyes.
     On June 28, he was in a group of cyclists zipping along at about 30 mph, only to skid after encountering bits of an alligator squashed by a car on State Road 84.
     Nicholls says internal bleeding in his skull has caused swelling, although doctors say it eventually will go down. Until then, he keeps his eyes closed to prevent dizziness and is trying to eat as much as possible. His thin runner's build is now too thin, with his weight dropping from 134 pounds to 120.
     "I have no memory at all of what happened," said Nicholls, whose last recollection was having fish for dinner the night before.
