Is the photo real? It looks kinda blurry on his left hip area even though the rest of the image is sharp, like it's been cloned in Photoshop. Or maybe it's just my aging eyes playing tricks on me. ;)

I think it's real, the softness is down to jpeg compression. After all its only a 67kb image file. What a horrible accident though.
