Oof! Ouch! This year’s Winter X Games have produced some serious injuries. We told you about the Battersby girls and Iceland’s Helgason. Now there is Colton and Caleb Moore. Both brothers (unlike the unrelated Battersby girls) crashed their sleds in the freestyle snowmobile competition. At first it was thought Caleb Moore just banged his head pretty hard. Later it was found the impact caused an injury that resulted in blood filling his chest cavity. Luckily the docs caught it in time and performed emergency surgery saving his life.
The number and severity of this year’s injuries has caused CNN to take notice.
