According to reports, the student who was identified as Richard O’Brien, 19, from Davis, hit a tree while he was skiing last Saturday.

A medical helicopter and ambulance were reportedly dispatched to help the skier but he still died inside the ski patrol room.

For those who love to ski, they can avoid being involved in a fatal accident by wearing helmets, avoid drinking before doing the activity, and being aware of anyone or anything that they might suddenly encounter on the slopes.
