Indeed. Article sez he got bumped off course, went OTB, then headfirst into the dirt. Definetly very
bad news...and his folks were there watching! He was a rising star too apparently...only 19.

Man, that really sucks. I've been in love with that sport since I was a young pup.

I'm curious as to the final autopsy report because, "A paramedics' communication said the cause of
death was from a ruptured aorta. An official cause won't be announced until an autopsy is complete."
This sounds a little strange to me??

how would the paramedic be able to determine for sure a ruptured aorta without a visual cue (
such as an open gaping chest wound) or barring thatk, x ray vision. Sounds like a pretty good
guess to me.

Doesn't something funky happen to yer eyeballs when you blow an aorta ?? I don't maybe I've watched
one too many CSI episodes.

I think there's a particular type of break to the ribs and/or collar bone that can also tear the
aorta. Emergency personnel are taught to suspect or consider the possibility when they get an
accident victim presenting with that pattern of rib/chest injury.

a lot can also be determined by "mechanism of injury" too. I'd ask the resident ski patroller but
he's at a search and rescue meeting.

Supercross is a great sport. When someone dies it is bad for the sport. I was at a local race a few years ago and a 13 year old kid had a simple fall and died. It was really bad. The races were canceled and everyone went home. It just puts a sad mood on the day.
I guess I just hope that this does not continue to happen at supercross races. My Nascar friends are always telling me of someone who died during a race. Can't see how this would do any good for the sport.
Just my thoughts
