During the ladies snowboard slopestyle event, Sarka Pancochova of the Czech Republic had a nasty fall that split her helmet in half. However, she was able to get up and finish her run. In the women’s ski slopestyle on Tuesday, Canada’s Yuki Tsubota wasn’t nearly as lucky.

Tsubota had a nasty crash that sent her sliding down the slope without her goggles and one of her skis.

The medical staff came out to tend to Tsubota, before eventually carrying her off on a gurney.

While the crash appeared horrifying, the good news is that Tsubota only suffered a fractured jaw (only?) and she was able to avoid any head injury.
