Tiger 'in good spirits' after procedures
ROLLING HILLS ESTATES, Calif. (AP) With short, sure strokes of a flathead ax, firefighter Cole Gomoll methodically chopped along the edge of the SUV's broken windshield as golf icon Tiger Woods - tangled up in his seatbelt and covered in a sheet to avoid shards of glass - waited in shock inside the mangled wreck.
When Gomoll had cut a long, continuous line to the end of the glass, he and another Los Angeles County firefighter peeled back the windshield. The 6-lb (2.7-kilogram), 36-inch-long (91-centimeter-long) ax went down, and the backboard was swapped in.
Within minutes, the ambulance had raced away, bound for the trauma center with its famous patient in the back.
