Ayrton Climo hurt in Canada

Ayrton Climo who started karting with us has been gravely injured at Le Monaco street  race in Montreal.

Recent South Lakes High School graduate Ayrton Climo was seriously injured last weekend in a street course go-kart accident in Trois-Riveres, Quebec, according to the Canadian Karting News website.

Climo was on a practice run at Le Monaco de Trois-Rivieres when he made contact with the hay bales ringing the track and was thrown from his cart.

From Canadian Karting News:

Following an immediate surgery to relieve the pressure on his swelling brain from the impact, Climo was medically induced into a coma to allow the swelling of his brain to reduce. All of his vitals, bones and muscles are in good condition and the swelling in his brain is going down although as of Monday he still remains in the induced coma in critical but stable condition.

We all wish him a prompt recovery.
