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.

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.
