How did Gernot Reinstadler die?

During training for the Lauberhorn race, while entering the finish S (German: Ziel-S), Reinstadler lost control and crashed into safety nets at full speed, where one of his skis became trapped. Reinstadler suffered a significant pelvic fracture and severe internal injuries and bleeding. He died later the same night at a hospital in Interlaken, after undergoing several blood transfusions.[1]

Following Reinstadler’s death, the 1991 Lauberhorn race was cancelled. As a result of this incident, safety measures were improved — the holes in safety nets were made smaller so that ski tips could no longer become so easily entangled in them upon impact.
