17 year snowboarder died in accident

A seventeen year old snowboarder died in an accident in Pinzgau, Austria. He was riding off-piste when he fell and landed head first in a ditch. His friend tried to pull him up repeatedly but wasn’t able to. When the friend had gotten help and they dug the boarder up he had suffocated. The friend were treated for chock and a hand injury he sustained during his efforts to save his friend.

    Didn’t this happen in Canada 2-3 years ago as well? Some kid landed in a big pot-hole filled with snow and drowned in powder.

    Man, that really, truly sucks :(

    Yeah I think it did, in Fernie BC. That guy were riding by himself and fell into a tree well head first and couldn’t get up, he drowned or suffocated as well.
