Gut wrenching to listen to the audio of this skier in Obertauern, Austria after he accidentally blew through the end of a run onto a roadway 6 meters below. Thankfully none of his injuries were permanent but film student Jakob Neuhauser did suffer a bruised lung, fractured right thigh, and broken pelvis.

A spontaneous 6 meter ended what has been an awesome season. The crash fractured my right thigh, my pelvis three times and one rip. In addition I bruised my lung a bit. I've never been so scared before and never been so relieved to hear that non of the damages would be permanent. They might put up some kind of fence at this spot ; ) Big thanks to @lukasmuehlbacher and all the helpers, paramedics and doctors who saved me and put me back together. #sendit #fullsend #jerry @jerryoftheday #freeride #fail #drop #happytobehealthy #gopro #hero5session #lagravingtechiques
