A hug is duct tape for the soul.

 

Sad news. So sorry to hear this.


From The New York Post

Canadian freestyle skier Sarah Burke died Thursday, more than a week after suffering severe brain injuries in a training accident in Utah.
"Groundbreaking Canadian freestyle skier Sarah Burke passed away at 9:22AM January 19, 2012 at the University of Utah Hospital from injuries sustained in an accident on the Eagle Superpipe at Park City Mountain Resort on Tuesday, January 10, 2012," her family said in a statement.
The trailblazing 29-year-old, a gold medal hopeful for the 2014 Olympics, was preparing for this month's X Games when she crashed last Tuesday.
Burke had surgery the following day at Salt Lake City's University Hospital to repair a torn vertebral artery that caused bleeding on her brain and sent her into cardiac arrest.
She had remained in critical condition in an induced coma for the past week, but her family said the injuries proved too severe to overcome. The family also pointed out that Burke's condition was not the result of a traumatic brain injury, but rather the lack of oxygen to the brain during cardiac arrest.
"Sarah passed away peacefully surrounded by those she loved," her family's statement said. "In accordance with Sarah's wishes, her organs and tissues were donated to save the lives of others."
