On his second run of the final, Totsuka dropped in and went for his first jump, twisting several times in the air. Emergency medical personnel came to Totsuka's aid and loaded him onto a cart before taking him off the course.

The crash comes amid a wave of criticism from athletes who have hit out at the unsafe and windy conditions they have being forced to compete in in at the winter games in South Korea.

Totsuka hit the lip of the halfpipe as he hurtled back to the ground and dropped down to the flat.

Thankfully, despite how shocking the fall looked, a press officer from Team Japan has reportedly said Totsuka managed to escape with only minor hip damage.

YouTube TV Adds New Channels, Raises Price
As a result of the additional channels, the service will increase it's pricing to $40 a month on March 13 for new members. Additionally, NBA TV and MLB Network are still coming "soon", but will be a part of the base package once they are added.

Rukajarvi added that she believed the event should have been moved: "It wasn't [the right decision]".

Totsuka was the youngest competitor in the finals of the men's halfpipe in Pyeongchang, South Korea.

Although Totsuka was moving, he wasn't able to get up on his own.

"I think it was not a good show for women's snowboarding".
