Caleb Moore, Snowmobiler, Dies After Winter X Games Crash

Snowmobiler Caleb Moore was in critical condition Tuesday in a Colorado hospital after a dramatic crash at the Winter X Games in Aspen, and a relative said the family wasn’t hopeful about the 25-year-old’s chances for survival.

The snowmobile rolled over him, but he walked off with help and went to a hospital with a concussion. Moore later developed bleeding around his heart and was flown to a hospital in Grand Junction for surgery. The family later said that Moore, of Krum, Texas, also had a complication involving his brain. “Caleb is not doing good at all,” his grandfather Charles Moore told The Denver Post. “The prognosis is not good at all. It’s almost certain he’s not going to make it.” A family spokeswoman reissued a statement Tuesday thanking fans, friends and family for their support and asked for continued prayers. The family declined further comment. A separate accident Thursday left Moore’s younger brother, Colten, with a separated pelvis at Winter X, an increasingly popular event that showcases the world’s best action sports athletes in a festival atmosphere.

    Hey “tweetme” thats who you are? This guy was dedicated to his sport and career. Maybe something youll never have. Respect the man he was doing something big for his family and his loved ones. Saying that hes an idiot for doing that, makes you look pathetic.

    Not if you know what you’re doing. That’s why these situations are called accidents. And, not trying to be rude, but seriously consider stop trolling on pages discussing a man’s death. It’s different on entertainment videos, etc, but some of your responses below are just too much. :/
