David was injured in a summer ski training accident at the Utah Olympic Park while training for Slopestyle aerials. He had just completed a training jump on the contoured Progression Airbag. While he was walking off the bag, carrying my skis,  the anchoring system that holds the Airbag to the ground failed. This resulted in the airbag overturning and dropping him 65 feet to a ground landing.

“You, me, or nobody is going to hit as hard as life. But it ain't about how hard ya hit. It's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done.“
