British skateboarder Sky Brown says her “helmet and arm saved her life” after being involved in a horrific fall during training.
“I don’t usually post my falls or talk about them, because I want people to see the fun in what I do, but this was my worst fall, and I just want everyone to know that I’m OK,” Brown said in her video from hospital.
After reportedly suffering skull fractures and broken bones in her left wrist and hand in her fall, she was taken to hospital by helicopter. The British Olympic team didn’t immediately respond to CNN’s request for comment.
Brown’s father, Stewart, told the BBC that she was “lucky to be alive” after the fall.(cnn.com)
