roseJuly 31, (THAINDIAN NEWS) X-Games star Paris Rosen had to be rushed to the hospital after he landed on his back while attempting a front flip. The stunt which went horribly wrong, shocked the crowd at the Staples Center and the audience. The horror heightened when Paris Rosen remained motionless on the ground for a long time after the crash. The medical personnel rushed to the spot and slowly strapped the biker into a gurney. He was sent to the hospital in an ambulance from the Staples Center corridor.

The horrifying crash left a strong impact on the rest of the competitors as well. The winner Cam Sinclair of Australia said that it was a mistake. He said that mistakes were common and he made one last year in Spain. Cam Sinclair has suffered a broken cheekbone, a broken shoulder and a ruptured liver last year and was rushed to the critical care facility in Madrid. Runner up Robby Madison also echoed similar emotions. He said that those kind of jumps might be pulled off in a rider’s own environment but when it comes to the X Games, the magnanimity of the event can cause mistakes to happen easily. He also wished Paris Rosen a speedy recovery.

The announcers at the X Games also understood the concern of the audience and announced that he was awake, talking and able to move his limbs. The crowd gave a roaring response to the announcement after it was completely silenced by the crash. Paris Rosen’s Manager confirmed that he was able to move his toes right after he was taken away from the Staples Center in the ambulance.
