X Games Snowmobiler Caleb Moore Has Died

Crashed his snowmobile during an event 1 week ago. He was only in his 20s, way too young to die.

Definitely a shame. Especially after he initally walked away from the crash. His brother also injured himself (a pelvis IIRC) during the games as well.

Sad news. I saw the crash live, he walked off and it didn't look that bad, but with internal injuries like that you can't tell the severity until you actually get to the hospital.

It sucks but the unfortunate reality of extreme sports (well, life really) is that things like this can sometimes happen.
