Scary Moment At Olympics As Snowboarder Breaks His Neck In Fall

| Filed under: ZportzInjuryOlympicsSnow SportsScary!

So scary!

Olympic snowboarders take their lives in their hands every time they launch 15 feet into the air, but it's rare we see the danger up close.

On Thursday, Austria's Markus Schairer lost control of his board during his second to last jump and came down on his back, snapping his neck backward.

The Austrian Olympic committee confirmed Schairer had fractured his fifth cervical vertebrae — and somehow was able to stand on his own after a few moments and finish the course!

They don't believe there is any long-term damage or mental impairment, which frankly is a freakin' miracle.

Sending positive vibes and hoping for your speedy recovery, Markus!

Tinseltown Is A Winter Wonderland — Where All These Celebs Have Been Accused Of Liking 'Snow'

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow…

Hollywood may not be known for its annual snowfall, but that doesn't mean the city is without its fair share of fresh powder.

Cocaine is practically as common as marijuana in some parts, which explains why so many of your favorite celebs openly admit to partaking in the drug.

However, some A-Listers aren't as honest when it comes to their coke habits… which is why a few of them have only been accused of liking the "snow."

So, is your favorite celebrity a secret snow angel??

Shaun White Sued For Sexual Harassment By His Own Bandmate!

The flying tomato is about to get squashed…

Shaun White is easily the most famous athlete in the world of snowboarding, but you may be surprised to learn that he's also a semi-accomplished musician.

However, that may be over now because his own drummer is currently suing him for sexual harassment!

Lena Zawaideh formed the band Bad Things with Shaun back in 2008, but has now filed a lawsuit against the two-time Olympic gold medalist for $42,000 in back payments.

However, the real uphill legal battle for Shaun is that she's also suing for punitive damages for "inappropriate and sexually harassing and suggestive comments" both in-person and over text!

Apparently, Shaun has a history of using his fame to steamroll his band mates — he even forced them to "tour" with him when he was training for the 2014 Olympics to suit his own travel needs — and altogether stopped paying Lena her $3,750 per month stipend once he felt she reached her worth!

Ugh! If these accusations are true, that's a half-pipe too far for us!

This is so sad… and scary!

Estelle Balet, a world champion snowboarder from Switzerland, died on Tuesday after being caught in an avalanche during a snowboarding film shoot in the Alps.

Balet, just 21 years old, was filming a downhill run on Le Portalet, a mountain in Switzerland near the country's southwest border with Italy and France, when she followed another snowboarder through a narrow ravine.

That triggered the avalanche that carried on for nearly three-quarters of a mile down the mountain, catching and trapping the young snowboarder in its wake.

Balet was equipped with all the proper emergency gear: she was wearing a rescue beacon, a helmet, and an airbag — what snowboarders use to create an air pocket should they be trapped in an avalanche — but

All sentimental stuff aside, Todd made light of the situation when he admitted to binge watching Deadliest Catch (why aren't we surprised?) and Bering Sea Gold from his comfy couch in Alaska we guess bad TV is always a good cure!

This could have ended very differently.

As we previously reported, Todd Palin was seriously injured in a snowmobile accident in Alaska Sunday night, and while his wife Sarah Palin is far from our favorite celeb, we'd never wish harm on her or her family.

That's why we're excited to report that despite two collapsed lungs, multiple broken bones, and a bruised liver, the 51-year-old is currently expected to recover.
