Get Well Soon Lucas!

Lucas Magoon is in “serious condition, but stable” in the ICU of Renow Health Hospital in Reno after a fall skating. The folks at Boardistan did their reserch and found out he is NOT in an induced coma as was previously reported on Twitter. Lucas is not only a great kid and amazing snowboarder, but the richest man in Rutland! If we prayed, our prayers would go out to Lucas. Get well soon buddy!

Update: 9:00 PM Aug. 13, word from Lane Knaack is that prognosis for Lucas is good. Thanks everyone for your thoughts and prayers!

Update from EStone: 9:21 PM. Hey Everyone I just got off the phone with Lucas’s nurse. He is not in a coma. They are keeping him heavily sedated to minimize the chance that he will move around and cause his brain to start bleeding again. The bleeding has stopped and the swelling is going down. They will try to take him off the ventilator in the morning and bring him out of his lucid state. Lets all pray for him tonight.

Update: 11:10 am, Aug. 14. Lucas is awake and off the ventilator. Friends say he is “awake and confused.” He is still in the ICU and under constant watch, but is doing much better.

Update: 3:27 pm, Aug 14 from E Stone: I just got a very positive update from one of Goon’s friends at the hospital. He is awake and is showing his classic Gooner personality. He has a long way to go but is on the path to recovery. For anyone who does not know it was a skateboarding accident. Pending his insurance situation we might be hitting you all up for a donation. Thanks for all the positive Vibes.

    He is in fact in a coma… The bleeding in his brian has stopped but they are drilling holes to relieve the pressure from the swelling.

    Who cares where he’s from. It sucks that this happened to such a good rider and I hope he makes a full recovery.

    Hey ME….they NEVER drilled any holes to relieve the pressure. and YES he they did induce coma to stop hiim from hurting himself further. he is now off the ventilator and responding, however he still is not fully alert and is still mostly sleeping. and YO it’s kind of petty, in light of the seriousness of this, that you give shit about him saying he’s from Rutland, not Pittsford. His entire family is from Rutland, his address was Pittsford just 8 miles away, the big deal about this is????? Get a grip!

    Talked to Lucas’ mom today…. No holes drilled in his head, but still an option if the swelling doesnt go down. He is periodically woken up and he is responsive and does what the doc’s are asking. yes he is from pittsford, but who cares about that. Lets all be worried about him getting better right now!

    He’s a good snowboarder, but not even in the top 1000 of nice guy snowboarders. (He’s kind of a dick)
    Nontheless, I truly hope he makes a full recovery and starts wearing a helmet.

    Subdural hematomas ain’t no joke. After mine in 2008 left me dizzy for seven months, (it was also concussion #4) I finally agreed to ride with a bucket. Best of luck to Lucas and family.
