The son had a GoPro camera mounted on himself so the aftermath of the accident was captured on video, though the lens of the camera was fogged a bit making parts of the picture blurry. He returned up to the spot where his father collided with the starting gate only to find the old man half unconscious with his head wedged between the bars of the metal structure. Snow under his head was stained with blood and as he helped him out of there, the blood continued running down the father’s face.
The injuries sustained were pretty severe and required a helicopter to escort the father to the hospital for speedy treatment. Based on the subtitles on the video, it took father 3 days to recover well enough to be released from the hospital and by the sounds of it, he went right back on the slopes to continue skiing.
It doesn’t look from the video that the father wore a safety helmet. Perhaps that would be the first thing to take into an account before returning on the ski slopes next time around? What say ya, lads?
