Snowboarder Kevin Pearce moved to Denver hospital
Snowboarder Kevin Pearce has been transferred to a Denver
hospital specializing in brain injuries.
Pearce banged his head on the halfpipe during practice Dec. 31
and was taken to University of Utah hospital.
An update Thursday says Pearce is making “excellent strides”
since the accident left him in critical condition. He has been
moved to Craig Hospital – considered to have one of the top rehab
facilities for people with traumatic brain injuries.
Doctors at the Utah hospital say Pearce is able to walk and
perform daily activities with assistance. They describe his
progress as “tremendous.”
