Urs Kryenbuehl was airlifted to hospital after a horrific 87mph crash on the males’s downhill World Cup in Kitzbuehel.
The 26-year-old was left immobile on the slope after the high-speed collision through the last leap of the race in Austria.
Kryenbuehl slid down round 50 metres to the end line earlier than a number of medical professionals rushed to his help.
It’s not the primary time that this explicit leaping level has resulted in a severe accident, with Daniel Albrecht left in a man-made coma for 3 weeks again in January 2009 after a coaching crash.
Croatian skier Elias Kolega, who was on commentary duties for HRT on the time, stated on the incident: “Wow, that is horrible, I haven’t seen such a fall in a very long time.”
No official affirmation has been given concerning the present situation of Kryenbuehl, with a number of stories indicating he suffered a severe head harm.
Kryenbuehl’s horrific crash was not the one speaking level from the day’s motion.
American Ryan Cochran-Siegle was additionally taken to hospital as a precaution after crashing into a security web and injuring his shoulder not lengthy earlier than the aforementioned crash.
