Snowmobiler Caleb Moore, a daredevil rider who was hurt in a crash at the Winter X Games in Colorado, died Thursday as a result of his injuries. He was 25.
Family spokeswoman Chelsea Lawson released a statement announcing Moore's death. The family didn't release any other details.
The first death in the 17-year history of the Winter X Games, Moore suffered a concussion Jan. 24 during the snowmobile freestyle final at Buttermilk Mountain in Aspen, Co. Bleeding on his heart was later discovered and he was airlifted to another hospital.
On Sunday, a family spokesperson announced that he'd suffered a "brain complication."
The freestyle competition involves riders navigating 450-pound snowmobiles over multiple jumps in 75 seconds. Moore attempted a backflip when his skis of his 450-pound snowmobile caught the top of the landing area, sending him over the handlebars. He landed face down, and his snowmobile rolled over him.
He stayed on the ground for a while, but eventually walked off with help.
