Del Bosco was in last place and trying to make up ground when he turned over in the air before coming down heavily on his right side

Del Bosco was sitting last during the event in Pyeongchang on Wednesday when he attempted to climb through the air to nab a qualifying place, CBC reports.

He had looked unsteady on his skis coming into the jump, before turning over in the air in front of shocked spectators.

Medics were called to the track and as he was stretchered away, he flashed a thumbs up to the crowd.

Jason Blevins, a reporter for the Denver Post, tweeted that Del Bosco had asked for course changes in training so skiers 'didn't send too deep off the jumps'.

He was the third athlete who had to be helped from the course by medics after another dangerous day on the mountains in South Korea.

Australian Anton Grimus was also hampered by injury having fallen in training, according to Fox Sports.

Despite injuring his shoulder the skier made it out for his qualifying heat, but finished a distance fourth out of four.

The athlete spent 10 minutes on the floor before being stretchered away by medics. He is now in stable condition in hospital with a pelvis injury

Del Bosco had been advocating for the jumps to be changed ahead of the event. He was the third racer out of eight to be helped from the course by medics
