Swiss skier Daniel Albrecht — the reigning super-combined world champion — is somehow in stable condition after flying ass-first for forty yards and landing on his neck and back in this brutal crash during a training run at the infamous Streif course in Kitzbühel, Austria.  Doctors have placed Albrecht into an induced coma and are unsure yet whether he can or will make a full recovery.

Yikes.  Pretty bad stuff.  I would never wish this on a skier.  Teenage skateboarders, sure.  They’re barely human.  But not a skier.
