Caleb Moore, ESPN X Games Competitor Dies in Snowmobile Crash

By Alpert Schreyer on February 7, 2013

Caleb Moore, age 25, died in a Colorado hospital on the morning of January 31st, 2013, one week after a snowmobile crash during an X games event. ESPN, the television network which broadcasts the Winter X Games, released a statement to CNN stating that because of the accident the network will undertake a comprehensive review of this type of snowmobile competition and adopt changes in the future if appropriate. Moore walked away from the crash, but his condition quickly deteriorated. His family said he suffered a brain complication and bleeding near his heart.

As reported in dailybreeze.com, during his landing, Moore was flung over the handlebars. The machine slammed into him and he was briefly knocked unconscious. He was able to walk away to an ambulance. Snowmobiles can weigh in excess of 450 pounds. Moore, a Krum Texas native, is the first to die in the Winter X Games’ 17-year history. This incident has led to questions regarding the safety of the Winter X Games, which are designed to challenge participants to push themselves to their limits and beyond.

Moore’s family released a statement to CNN expressing their gratitude for all the support and all the prayers from Caleb’s fans. That support has poured in from around the world. Caleb was an inspiration to his family, his friends, and fans everywhere. They will miss him and never forget him.

Many who suffer a brain injury do not realize the extent of damage right away. They soon may encounter medical problems needing immediate attention. Tragically many who suffer traumatic brain injury (TBI) die.
