Cindy Boren Sports coverage, focusing on politics and national stories December 16 at 10:24 The Swiss skier Marc Gisin is housed in the hospital's intensive care after his terrible crash during World Cup downhill competition Saturday in Selva di Val Gardena, Italy. Gisin was "stable enough" to fly to Switzerland on Saturday night, the Swiss ski team said in a statement. On Sunday morning there was a new statement that Gisin was intubated, but MR and CT scans showed "no serious harm" on his head and his condition "continues to stabilize." He has several cracks on his right side and has "damage to the lungs." But he is aware and communicates with doctors and family members. He has a "few nonserious fractures on the spinal column" and his brook was described as "bit dented" but rude. Gisin, 30, lost control halfway through the track, became airborne and landed on his side and back on the course's famous camel shocks. He flew into the air again and hit his head as he landed.

The Swiss skier Marc Gisin is housed in the hospital’s intensive care after his terrible crash during World Cup downhill competition Saturday in Selva di Val Gardena, Italy.

Gisin was “stable enough” to fly to Switzerland on Saturday night, the Swiss ski team said in a statement. On Sunday morning there was a new statement that Gisin was intubated, but MR and CT scans showed “no serious harm” on his head and his condition “continues to stabilize.” He has several cracks on his right side and has “damage to the lungs.” But he is aware and communicates with doctors and family members. He has a “few nonserious fractures on the spinal column” and his brook was described as “bit dented” but rude.

Gisin, 30, lost control halfway through the track, became airborne and landed on his side and back on the course’s famous camel shocks. He flew into the air again and hit his head as he landed. Gisin lay reluctantly on the track and was taken away from the mountain through a rescue helicopter. He was treated for about half an hour at a hospital in Bolzano.
