Video: Snowmobiler in critical condition after crash
Caleb Moore was performing a flip Thursday when he went over the handlebars
ASPEN, Colo. — Snowmobiler Caleb Moore was in critical condition Tuesday in a Colorado hospital after a dramatic crash at the Winter X Games in Aspen, Colo., and a relative said the family wasn't hopeful about the 25-year-old's chances for survival.
Moore was performing a flip Thursday when he went over the handlebars and the snowmobile rolled over him, but he walked off with help and went to a hospital with a concussion.
Moore, of Krum, Texas, later developed bleeding around his heart and was flown to a hospital in Grand Junction for surgery. Moore also had a complication involving his brain.
"Caleb is not doing good at all," Caleb's grandfather Charles Moore told The Denver Post. "The prognosis is not good at all. It's almost certain he's not going to make it."
