The X-Games world mourns the death of Caleb Moore on Thursday as he was pronounced dead after a crash in Aspen, Colo. on Monday. While attempting a backflip, Moore’s snowmobile did not complete the trick and landed prematurely, sending Moore tumbling forward. The machine then landed directly on him, crushing his heart. Moore was rushed to a nearby hospital for emergency heart surgery, but did not survive the aftermath of this tragic injury.
In addition, Moore’s younger brother, Colten, also suffered a serious injury in the X-Games during a crash that separated his pelvis. Needles to say, the Moore family is going through a rough stretch of days.
