"he came up short breaking 3 or 4 ribs, did something to his spleen (his bro said they wern't sure)He also ripped 2 out of 3 layers of the aorta...for those of you that don't know what that is, its the pump to your heart and basically if you tear all 3 your dead. Dspong had heart surgery yesterday, I'm not exactly sure what Evan (his bro) told me if there was a 90% chance of him being paralyzed, i was in to much shock to even remember. I was lucky enough to talk to derek not long after he got out of surgery and he sounded great for the condition's he was in."
he also collapsed a lung i believe. he was 16 when that happened. so ham. also enjoy is one of the best ski movies of all time. wish rage didn't call it quits. if anyone has a copy they would sell me or digitally send me shoot me a PM!
