The article “Springs girl, 14, dies in Breckenridge ski accident” by Kieran Nicholson matters because over 469 people died because of skiing from 1991 to 2003 in the U.S (www.ski-injury.com). Haley Rose Gans a 14 year old girl died today, November 22, 2009, at 11:45 a.m skiing down a blue run at Breckenridge. Even though Haley was wearing a helmet when she hit the tree she still died. This article matters to me because I LOVE to ski and it makes me realize how dangerous it can be and even though I wear a helmet I could still die. This matters to the world because many people ski, and they also need to realize that they need to be more careful because not only could they harm themselves, but they could harm other people. This matters to our class because since we live in Colorado and most of the class go skiing. In conclusion everyone needs to be more careful when skiing.
