Sandy Hook, CT

After 50 years of downhill skiing, and 25 years of raising his kids to ski and snowboard, David Weiner of Sandy Hook, Conn. lost control on some black ice at Smuggler’s Notch Resort in Jeffersonville, Vt. When the ice sent Weiner out of control, he hit a tree at full at speed which lead to fractures in his left femur, right tibia/fibula, and spine. Following the fall, Weiner was flown to University of Vermont Medical Center where he was told he had suffered a spinal cord injury at T8 and would need to have surgery immediately.
