Champion skier dies after training accident
Canadian freestyle skiing pioneer Sarah Burke died Thursday from injuries suffered during a training accident in Park City, Utah on Jan. 10. The crash initially did not appear serious to those who witnessed it but a ruptured artery sent the 29-year-old into cardiac arrest. Burke was treated for nine days at a Salt Lake City hospital before succumbing to her injuries.
"Our hearts go out to Sarah's husband [fellow skier] Rory [Bushfield] and her entire family. It's difficult for us to imagine their pain and what they're going through. Sarah was certainly someone who lived life to the fullest and in doing so was a significant example to our community and far beyond. She will be greatly missed by all of us at the CFSA and the entire ski community," Canadian Freestyle CEO Peter Judge said in a statement released Thursday.
