Kim Zolciak-Biermann issues safety helmet reminder after son's go-kart crash


Kim Zolciak-Biermann wants people to "understand the importance" of wearing safety helmets after her young son was "saved" by one in a scary go-kart crash.

The 41-year-old reality star took to her Instagram Stories on Thursday (02.01.20) to document the incident outside of their family home, which involved her six-year-old son Kane, whose father Kroy Biermann found him by a "huge pile of rocks" and had to "flip" him out of the kart.

The former 'The Real Housewives of Atlanta' star also revealed that she had a "dream" that Kane needed to be "in the middle" of her other two son's KJ, eight, and Krash, seven, on their karting trip.

In a series of clips, Kim recalled: "The boys went out on a go-kart ride in the neighbourhood. We took the golf cart and they rode their go-karts.

"I'm very intuitive so before we go, I said to Kroy that Kane needs to be in the middle between KJ and Kash.

"Everyone knows I'm the nervous Nelly in the family - I'm very protective - so my kids are my whole life and I'm always thinking safety first and that sort of thing. There's no real reason why I put Kane in the middle other than I felt something very strange and I had a dream that he needs to be in the middle."

She continued: "So, they're riding around our neighbourhood in a circle where they go all the time and I heard a bang.

"And I was like, 'Kroy, what was that?' And he's like, 'I don't know.' I start losing my s*** and I said, 'Kroy I think he's over there.'

"There's this huge pile of rocks and so Kroy starts walking towards the rocks to see if Kane is there.

"All of a sudden my husband starts to lose his s**t.

"I see my husband like Superman take the entire go-kart and flip it with Kane inside. Kane was upside down."

Kim - who also has children Brielle, 22, and Ariana, 18, and Kane's twin Kaia - was left "distraught" by the accident, and has called on everyone to wear safety helmets when they are out riding.

She concluded: "I want you guys to understand the importance of a helmet whether they're on a scooter or a bike or a go-kart.

"It ultimately saved Kane's life.

"I was so distraught I poured a glass of wine and Kroy just hugged me tight and I cried."

The go-kart crash comes three years after Kash was attacked by a dog and had to undergo an operation for his "traumatic injuries".
