Lindsey Vonn Got Airlifted To A Hospital



Well, this doesn’t look good. TMZ reports:
Olympic gold medal skier Lindsey Vonn was airlifted to a hospital in Austria today after a frightening crash during the Alpine World Championships in Schladming. Vonn lost her balance after landing awkwardly from a jump … losing her ski and skidding into a gate. Doctors evaluated Vonn for more than ten minutes on the slope before she was loaded on to a helicopter and flown to a nearby hospital. According to reports, the doctor who examined Vonn says he believes she suffered a tibial plateau fracture — also known as a break in the shinbone.

White people like skiing, climbing mountains, jumping out of airplanes, and swimming with sharks. Usually they think nothing will happen to them because they’re white, but sometimes they fracture their leg or somebody makes a movie about the time they cut off their own arm.
