Vonn was airlifted out of the Schladming ski area to a local hospital.
Shown earlier in the competition, Vonn is a superstar and former Olympic champion.

Vonn was lifted above the skiing village on a backboard attached to the helicopter.
The temperature was about 30 degrees as Vonn was airlifted above the Austrian mountains.
