The incident took place on October 30, when Diego Moreno was the last, he did not see "a small crater in the asphalt", he let go of the handlebar, lost control and fell on the leaves of the central platform.

Moreno was "very grateful" to the neighbor who assisted him and the health workers at the Vera Barros hospital, where they treated him.
