Canadian women’s freestyle skier Yuki Tsubota was carted off the slopestyle course in Sochi early Tuesday after suffering what looked like a serious injury.

The 20-year-old came up well short while attempting a high-risk jump to close out her routine.

The Vancouver, B.C., native stayed down on the hill as Olympic emergency services personnel rushed to help the motionless Canuck.

She was then carried off the course with an air cast on one of her legs.
