George was snowboarding with his step-father in Colorado when he suffered his accident. While heading down a blue run he came to a section were a bunch of small kids came out of the trees and surprised him. Not wanting to run into them, George tried to check up using his heel edge, but when he did, he caught his toe edge and flipped over landing on his head. The impact led to a C6/7 burst fracture, causing paralysis from the neck down.
