*RARE* Gernot Reinstadler fatal crash 1991

Rare footage of Gernot Reinstadler's fatal crash back in 1991. From what I know there are two diffrent clips of this horrific accident, however it seems to have been erased from the internet. Apparently this clip has surfaced recently.




During training for the en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lauberhornauberhorn race, while entering the finish S, Reinstadler lost control and crashed into safety nets at full speed, where the tip of his ski gets caught in the net tearing his abdomen open. Reinstadler suffered a pelvic fracture and severe internal injuries. By the time he reached the hospital he had lost 3.5 litres of blood (The human body carries around 5.5 litres).

He died later the same night (12.43pm) at an Interlaken hospital after a six-hour operation as a result of heavy bleeding in the pelvic region.
