“Sky fell 40 feet from a ski lift yesterday which could have been easily prevented if the operator had stopped the lift when he saw sky wasn’t on from the start and @rbermanus screaming to stop the lift,” she continued. “Needless to say by a miracle and the Ski patrol heroes who quickly put a mat under where they thought he would fall ultimately saved his life or from what could have happened.
“Sky is in great spirits but sore and banged up a bit but otherwise a brave champion. Mom and Dad scarred for life but Sky wanted to say this ..”
Rachel’s Instagram Story also featured a video from Skyler himself, who assured his mother’s concerned followers he is “fine.”
The youngster said: “Hi everyone. I’m OK, just sore. To show you that I’m OK, I’m gonna stand up — see look, I can stand up — and I can walk. See, I’m totally fine, it’s just I’m a little sore and I’m kinda hurting, but I’m fine.”
And Rachel added in the final post: “@rbermanus and I have never been more grateful for seeing your child (do) the most simple tasks of walking talking and laughing. Truth be told Sky was more brave than either of us and we continue to just kiss, hug and simply just stare at him until further notice … hug your babies extra from us today.”
