Caleb Moore is a snowmobile star and was competing at this year's Winter X Games.
He is a big name in the pro snowmobile game so it was a big deal when he spectacularly mistimed a big air backflip and landed his 450-pound snowmobile on top of himself!
It was thought that he only had a concussion after the serious accident but after being checked out at a hospital he had to undergo emergency surgery for bleeding around his heart!!
He's currently recovering in the ICU at St. Mary's Hospital in Grand Junction, Colorado.
What's even crazier is Caleb's 23-year-old brother, Colten, went right after him and crashed his snow mobile into the same spot as Caleb!
Colten was treated for a separated pelvis which sounds gross and just as bad as a heart contusion if not worse!
Maybe they should try a less extreme snow sport, like making snow angels or eating snowflakes as they fall.
Ww wish them both nothing but a full recovery!
