The article “Texas teen brain-dead after Beaver Creek ski accident” by Edward Stoner matters because thousands people die each year because of ski related accidents. Sunday afternoon, 13 year old Taylor Storch was enjoying the 47 degree weather when she suddenly veered off an intermediate run and collided with a tree. Even though she was wearing a helmet she was brain dead. This matters to me because I ski at Beaver Creek oodles of times and have gone down the same run that she crashed on. This matters to the world because people ski all over the world and need to be more careful when skiing. This article relates to our class because over half the class most likely goes skiing regularly and need to realize that skiing is very dangerous. In conclusion, this article matters because thousands of people suffer from skiing injuries each year.
