The family of snowmobile star Caleb Moore has confirmed his death. At the Winter X Games in Aspen last week, he under-rotated a flip and his snowmobile crashed on top of him. He suffered bleeding around his heart and suffered complications involving his brain.
Here is his family's statement, posted on Facebook:
This morning Caleb Moore passed away. He will be truly missed and never forgotten. The family wishes to express their deep gratitude for all the prayers and support they have received from all the fans, friends and family around the world that Caleb has inspired. They would also like to thank the physicians and medical staff at both Aspen Valley Hospital and St. Mary's Hospital, Grand Junction for their care and dedication.
At this time, the family will not be making any other public statements. They continue to decline interviews. Thank you for continuing to respect the family's privacy during this difficult time. Arrangements for a celebration of life are being made and an announcement will be made in the coming days.
A website was created to help Moore's family with medical costs:
We here at Channel 93.3 are incredibly saddened by the loss of Caleb and give our sincerest condolences to his brother Colton and the rest of the Moore family. Caleb died doing what he loved to do and we're forever thankful for the time we got to spend with him.
The following videos are our some of our fondest memories of hanging out with Caleb and his brother:
