    I was told this by a Falls Creek person today.

    The CEO of Falls, was hit by a drunken boarder, female.

    He is now in ICU Melbourne hospital and it is possible that he is permanently paralyzed.

    This is all I know, I hope I don't set too many hearts aflutter.

    Hope he gets better. :(

    That is sad news skijac... I hope that he is ok and his injuries don't turn out to be quite as serious or permanent for that matter. Geeze it sends shivers down my spine and makes me a little nauseous at the realisation that we are all at risk from such accidents.. the thought of my children getting hurt in such a way or worst still killed due the irresponsible behaviour of another makes me sick. The female responsible for his injuries is going to have a lot to answer for.. shame on her

    Thoughts and prayers for him and his family
    Are we there yet?... Are we there yet?... Are we there yet?... Are we there yet?... Are we there yet?

    It is a bit confusing as to who is the CEO at Falls did they mention a name.
    Not good news in any case, I hope they can make a full recovery.

    It's concerning that a drunk snowboarder has done this if it is true.

    If we are talking about Schryver or how ever it is spelt, I think he is now CEO of Perisher, Falls and Hotham.

    Correct I was more focusing on the drunk bit more than what type of rider it was.

    Why not a 2 or 3 year, or more ban. If someone gets on a bicycle and takes out another person, they are liable, and subject to the same laws as a motorist.
    If the victim in this "accident" is paralysed, or has any other permanent injury, I think the accused should be banned for life and go through some sort of rehab.

    This is horrible news, regarless of who was hit or who hit them. It's never cool when someone gets hurt on the hill. I hope they make a full recovery.

    If you hear any updates please let us know.

    I was at Falls yesterday, that's not the man they were talking about. Apparently he is hurt, has spinal injuries, but is expected to be ok.

    Fact was it was a drunk snowboarder

    End of story

    Best wishes to the person at the receiving end of the "accident"

    Worst wishes to the drunken snowboarder involved
