Heir to Cochran ski greatness breaks neck - Burlington Free Press

It’s been quite a ski season for Ryan Cochran-Siegle. Earlier this month he won his first World Cup race ever. A head-on collision resulted in a broken neck three days ago. Now he’s gearing up for a return.

"Cochran-Siegle sustained the minor neck fracture in a high-speed crash on the Streif, one of the most dangerous courses on the circuit. He lost balance when he leaned back while landing a jump, slid off course and cut his way through the first row of safety nets. He was taken to hospital by helicopter."
