My brother twisted his ankle

It was the first day we went out skiing in a long time, and my brother was warming up on a green. It was a harder green, almost a blue Id say. I went down before him so I didnt know what was going on. I stop and turn around to wait for him and I see him on the ground laying there. We call ski patrol and they snow mobile him off the mountain into first aid, he ended up TWISTING HIS ANKLE. Dont ask me how..he just did. All of that for a twisted ankle. He was up and skiing two days after.

It just shows you, you can get injured on the easiest of slopes. My brother broke his wrist on a blue run on a snowboard and he wasn't even going fast.

Even standing you still have a chance of hurting yourself, after all you are on skis on snow. So its not uncommon to hurt yourself.

Same thing, I was roller blading and broke my wrist, don't see why he couldn't sprain his ankle doing that.

Must've been embarassing for him having all that attention just for a sprained ankle. Oh well, stuff happens I suppose.

Wasn't anything more than just a sprained ankle? Nothing fractured ? What did the people say when they reached him?

lol I could see the guy on the radio " O we just got a little one with a twisted ankle nothing big. " that would be something even though I twisted my ankle on the slopes but I didnt get the ski patrol to help me .
