US Mogul Skier In Stable Condition After Horrific Crash at World Cup Event

By

Team USA mogul skier George McQuinn is reported to be in stable condition after this nasty crash during the FIS Freestyle World Cup event in Deer Valley Utah. With a sickening thud, McQuinn hit the back of his head on the takeoff for the second jump and appeared to be knocked out before he hit the ground. The Salt Lake Tribune reports Team USA medical personnel and ski patrollers raced to the finish as McQuinn’s unconscious body slid across the line. McQuinn was stabilized, placed on a backboard and transported down the hill. A short time later, US Freestyle team communications liaison Lara Carlton said McQuinn had regained consciousness and was “seeking medical evaluation.” The CBC reports he is in stable condition. Very scary crash, we send George our well wishes on his recovery and want to remind everyone to wear a helmet while out on the slopes.
