Moore was able to walk off the accident after being down for a while, and was diagnosed with a concussion. However, he was found to have a heart contusion and brain complications not long after going to the Aspen Valley Hospital. He was flown to a hospital in Grand Junction for emergency surgery, after which it was determined he was brain dead and had little time left to live. Doctors harvested his organs before his death for donation. His younger brother and fellow X-Games snowmobiler, Colten, suffered a broken pelvis in a crash the same night of his accident.
This is the first death in X-Games history.
My thoughts go out to the Moore family and their friends. The grave risk comes more readily with such dangerous territory, but that doesn't make this accident any less tragic or horrible.
