JACKSON, WYOMING — A ski instructor is lucky to have his face in one piece after a tree branch pierced his lip during a ski accident last week
Natty Hagood, 29, was hitting the slopes at the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort in Wyoming when he reportedly misjudged a gap between two trees, reported the Idaho State Journal.
That miscalculation saw a 1 ½-foot tree branch pierce his lower lip. He later broke the branch down to 6 inches and got it removed in hospital.
The bill for that was $1,500 bucks, but Hagood’s health insurance deductible was only $1,250, so he set up a Gofundme page to help pay for his treatment. According to the page, it’s already raised over $2,000.
