Hernandez, 21, landed low off a jump and planted the heel edge of her board in the snow. That whipped her backwards, and her head whipped against the course as she somersaulted down the course.
She lay motionless for a while as medical personnel rushed to the course. Hernandez was sitting up and moving before being put in a sled and carted down the hill.
