During Wednesday’s ski cross competition, Team Canada’s Chris Del Bosco was in a horrific crash.

The Montreal native was attempting a push on one of the final jumps in the hope of moving on to the quarter finals.

Unfortunately, the 35-year-old lost control mid-air before crashing hard onto his side on the icy slope below.

The freestyle skier was on the ground for several minutes before being taken off the hill on a stretcher.

All of Canada breathed a collective sigh of relief as Chris gave a thumbs-up to the crowd as he was being carried off.

CBC reports that he is currently in stable condition in hospital.

Canada’s Brady Leman went on to capture gold in the ski cross event.
