Norwegian ski jumper Daniel Andre Tande is reportedly in stable condition after one of the most horrible, agony of defeat ski jumping accidents in the history of the sport. Tande was training for a World Cup event in Planica, Slovenia when he lost control at 100 kilometers an hour and rotated in the air, according to media reports from the event.
Tande, 27, was treated on the hill for 30 minutes before being flown to a medical facility where he is now in stable condition, according to the International Skiing Federation. Norway ski jump team manager Clas Brede Braathen told reporters that Tande suffered a broken collarbone but will otherwise be fine, which is nuts when you watch the video.

“We will take care of Daniel of course when he wakes up again. And we will take care of each other in the difficult situation we have been in,” Braathen told NRK TV.
