(PCM) Olympic gold-medalist skier Lindsey Vonn has suffered a tibial plateau fracture or shin bone fracture after losing her balance following an awkward ski jump in Austria. Sources also say that Vonn tore her cruciate and lateral ligaments.
Vonn was checked over by doctors for more than ten minutes before the decision was made to airlift her via helicopter to a nearby hospital for further evaluation. There has been no immediate update on Lindsey’s condition however there should be a statement released later this afternoon.
The accident occurred in Austria during the Alpine World Championships in Schladming.
