Caleb Moore

Caleb Moore’s condition has worsened after a crash on Thursday at the X Games.

According to a report on ESPN.com, Moore was knocked unconscious in the crash and was evaluated for a concussion and other injuries. While he was being evaluated, it was discovered that he was bleeding around the heart and was airlifted to Grand Junction, Colo. for emergency heart surgery. Unfortunately, doctors discovered another issue on Sunday.

“Caleb continues to be monitored in ICU. His cardiac injury has led to a secondary complication involving his brain” the Moore family says in a statement. “The Moore family thanks all of Caleb’s fans and friends for their support and for respecting their privacy.”

On Monday the Denver Post reported that Moore was in desperate condition at St. Mary’s Hospital in Grand Junction, Colo.

“Caleb is not doing good at all,” Caleb’s grandfather Charles Moore told The Denver Post. “The prognosis is not good at all. It’s almost certain he’s not going to make it.”
