World Heli Challenge, South Island, New Zealand.
Freeskier Ted Davenport of the United States launches off a drop which resulted in him tragically breaking both legs landing on hard rock just below the surface of the snow. Davenport was competing in the World Heli Challenge Extreme Day at Mount Albert on Minaret Station, Wanaka, New Zealand and was the two times defending champion. His first run had resulted in a bad fall and a broken ski. His injures included a broken tibia and fibula. Emergency services reached Davenport who was air lifted to Wanaka Lake Health Centre then on to Dunedin hospital for surgery. He is due to marry in a few weeks time. 1st August 2011.
