Lindsey Vonn airlifted
Vonn, a four-time overall World Cup champion, apparently lost her balance while landing after a jump. Her right ski came off immediately, and she slid off course and into a gate.
Medical personnel tended to her injuries for 12 minutes before she was taken by helicopter to a hospital. During this time, the race -- which had already been postponed for more than three hours because of fog -- was temporarily delayed. It resumed after 15 minutes. No other information on Vonn's condition was immediately available from her U.S. team.
