Hey all one of my good friends from HS just got in a really bad snowboard accident...he went off a jump and feel really hard on his head ..instant concussion..had to get air lifted off the mountain and had surgery the other day they had to cut part of his skull so he brain could swell with out causing pressure hes doing better but is heavily sedated and cant respond to verbal communication if his nervous system is still good so nothing major there..so hes pretty much in a coma ..he is on a breathing machine to help through the nights....if we could all say a pray or more itd be greatly appreciated from one boarder to another....if you have facebook and want to give support there ...there is a page dedicated to his conditions and updates day by day .. Welcome to Facebook | Facebook

if you dont mind me asking,and im not insinuating anything im just curious if he was wearing a helmet.

no sadly he wasnt ...and it goes through most people heads that helmets arnt cool etc.. but after this its a huge eye opener....hes been snowboarding longer and more than i have so it goes to show that even the more skilled ppl can have mistakes happen...i was actually just looking at helmets online and will only sugg that everyone gets one
