The 18-year-old underwent treatment in an Idaho hospital after the mishap, which left him being taken away on a stretcher wearing a neck brace and with a deeply scraped bottom.
It is not clear how the teenager achieved his wounds, but parading the results on his Twitter page, he posted several references to his misfortune. He revealed to nearly 50,000 followers: “Little ski accident today. Some bruises and stiches down back and but. Thanks to sun valley doctors for everything (sic).”
He wasn’t kept down long. A day after suffering cuts and bruises in a skiing accident, the 18-year-old returned to the slopes in in Sun Valley, Idaho, on Sunday, apparently no worse for wear.
Just two days prior to posting this pic, Patrick posted a shirtless photo of himself and a friend at a swim meet with the following caption, “My first swim meet ever.”
