Hardest I ever bell rung was getting off a lift on an icey Jan day 2 year's ago. I would have been knocked out without my helmet.

RiP little guy. Hope his family heels from this.

Any hit to your head can kill you. Liam Neeson's wife was just taking lessons and was wearing a helmet I believe.

So sad.

Prayers and vibes to the little guy

Often wonder how I've survived so far.

Awful news, no parent should have to bury their child.

Ugh I just hate reading stories like this, very sad.

The hardest I've ever hit was my first year ever boarding and I caught an edge. Wearing my helmet as usual and still ended up with a concussion.
