His loss is huge for the game itself. Caleb Moore is dead and his crash video on Youtube of X Games 2013 accident has gone viral

Caleb Moore’s coroner report is out and he was declared brain dead by doctors and his family has announced to donate his organs. For the snowmobile driver’s fans across the world, this is a shock of a lifetime.

Just over a week ago, he was the most important contender expected to win the gold during the Winter X Games in the US. The ESPN sponsored games had never had such a terrible incident in more than 17 year long history of the game. Caleb Moore was the brightest kid on the block and was never afraid to take risk while competing in the games that were thought to be safe as so far the games had gone incident free.

Caleb Moore who had a terrible incident during the X Games 2013 in Aspen when his heavy snowmobile hit him badly in upper parts of the body smashing his head and chest was never able to recover from his injuries. All of 25 years, he had already won four medals in the last three years. While releasing the news of his surprise death his family said that the snowmobile driver died at St. Mary’s Hospital in Grand Junction, Colo., after succumbing to injuries he sustained last week during the games. “Caleb Moore passed away…He will be truly missed and never forgotten…The family wishes to express their deep gratitude for all the prayers and support they have received from all the fans, friends and family around the world that Caleb has inspired”, his family released a statement following the young athlete’s death.

He was one of the best athletes in the games and was expected to do really well. His exploits in the game began very early after he entered the sporting world. He won a bronze medal in the ESPN sponsored X Games in the year 2010 the first time he appeared during this dangerous winter games. He was the man who didn’t avoid dangerous path, but searched for tougher terrains to prove himself. The athlete was trying a backflip in the freestyle event during the X Games 2013 when the skis on his 450-pound snowmobile caught the lip of the landing area, throwing him on the handlebars. He fell on the snow and was then rolled down by his own snowmobile.

With his death the safety issues at the games have suddenly come into focus. ESPN in a press release said, “For 18 years, we have worked closely on safety issues with athletes, course designers and other experts…Still, when the world’s best compete at the highest level in any sport, risks remain”. But everyone wants the event to be incident free to let people enjoy the games fully. Caleb Moore’s loss is a huge blow not just for his family, but the game itself.
