Canadian freestyle skier Sarah Burke passed away

RIP Sarah



Skier Sarah Burke dies from injuries - The Globe and Mail



Quote:
Canadian freestyle skier Sarah Burke has died after a head injury suffered Jan. 10, at the Eagle Superpipe park at Park City Mountain resort in Utah.

A statement from Burke’s family said the 29-year freestyle skier – a four-time winner at the X-Games, died at 9:22 Thursday morning at the University of Utah Hospital “ from injuries sustained in an accident on the Eagle Superpipe at Park City Mountain Resort ... She was training for upcoming winter events.”

The statement said she suffered a ruptured vertebral artery, one of the four major arteries supplying blood to the brain.

“The rupture of this artery led to a severe intracranial hemorrhage, which caused Sarah to go into cardiac arrest on the scene,” the statement detailed.

Terrible news. Was really hoping she would pull through after the original incident.

Did she not have medical insurance? Kind of surprised by that.

I don't think this matters. You would pay anything for a family members life.
