Long Beach, CA

While on a family ski vacation with his family in Coeur d’Alene, ID, Derek suffered a C6/7 fracture while snow-tubing with his 7 year old son, wife, nephew and friends. The tube spun around backwards, preventing him from seeing how close he was to the bottom of the hill and crashed into a stack of hay bales backwards with full force.
