TX snowmobiler in critical condition after Winter X

Posted: Updated:

ASPEN, Colo. (AP) - Snowmobile rider Caleb Moore remains in critical condition after a crash at the Winter X Games in Aspen and is being closely monitored.
    
His family thanked Moore's fans for their support Monday and asked for their prayers.
    
The 25-year-old from Krum, Texas, a small town north of Denton, was performing a flip Thursday when he clipped the top of a jump and went over the handlebars. The snowmobile rolled over him, but he walked off the course with help and went to a hospital with a concussion.
    
While there, he developed bleeding around his heart and was flown to Grand Junction for surgery Friday. His family said Sunday that Moore then had a secondary complication involving his brain. They didn't provide details.
    
Moore's younger brother, Colten, also crashed in the competition and sustained a separated pelvis.
