‘I got a new piercing’: Branch impales ski instructor’s lip

‘I got a new piercing’: Branch impales ski instructor’s lip

POCATELLO – A ski instructor trying to jump between two trees on a Wyoming mountain says he crashed and ended up with an 18-inch branch impaling his lip.

Natty Hagood, who works at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, was snowboarding with friends last week when he tried to navigate the gap between the trees. After he fell, the 29-yearold told the Idaho State Journal that at first he thought his helmet strap got pushed into his face.

But he said he soon realized it was a branch jabbing through one side of his lip and out the other.

Hagood said he thought: “I just got impaled. And then I yelled over to Pete, ‘Hey, look, I got a new piercing.”‘
