Ski Accident Deaths

Comments (0)
The thrilling sport of snow skiing has resulted in several recent tragedies.  Retired ABC John McWethy lost his life after he crashed into a tree and suffered fatal injuries to his chest. In Michigan, a Michigan Tech engineering student died after suffering fatal head injuries on the ski slopes.  Another teenager died the week before from head injuries while skiing.  Unfortunately, neither teen skiier was wearing a protective helmet at the time of the their injuries.
These tragedies are a chilling reminder of the dangers posed by the sport, not only by obstacles in the course but also by other skiiers.  Skiiers often travel at much higher speeds and have less control than bicyclists, and the importance of protective helmets should not be overlooked.  Parents and ski coaches should require that all participants wear protective helmets to avoid future tragedies.
