Three-time Olympic ski jump champion Thomas Morgenstern was rushed to the hospital on Friday after a horrific crash knocked him unconscious.

Morgenstern lost control of his skis in mid-air, causing him to lose his balance and plummet down a 300-foot jump in Kulm, Austria, during training for a World Cup event.

According to a report by Joe.ie, the 27-year-old Austrian quickly regained consciousness and was able to move his legs and feet shortly after the accident.
