Man suffers eye injury from Bungee cord
- For the second time in nine days a man suffered a serious eye injury when a Bungee cord suddenly snapped.  Rescuers were called to the North Truro Camping Area on Highland Road about 2 PM where the man was reportedly trying to pitch a tent.  They requested a Medflight helicopter but it could not respond due to weather, so the victim 46-year old Dana Conover of Norwich, CT was rushed to Cape Cod Hospital.  A man also suffered a serious eye injury in an eerily similar accident in Provincetown on July 1st. welcomes thoughtful comments and the varied opinions of our readers.
