Mark McMorris is making his first public comments since a serious accident last weekend.
McMorris has taken to his Twitter account to make a short statement as he continues to recover in a Vancouver hospital.
The 23 year old Regina snowboarder is calling the past week the hardest of his life and that he almost died.
McMorris suffered a broken jaw, a broken arm, a ruptured spleen and a fractured pelvis amongst other injuries after what is being called a “freak accident” on a backcountry excursion.
McMorris’ message ends with him saying “stories are coming”
