Internal bleeding and his wife seeming to suggest he is a miracle man who has beaten the odds.Certainly looks bleak!

She apparently was a national treasure of the Cayman Islands and played the drums in the traditional Cayman Island style for a century. At the time of her death, she was also the oldest living inhabitant of the Cayman Islands. She also was the last living member of the "traditional Caymanian music fraternity".

The international skiing community lost a true original when Nelson Bennett died at home on Friday, Jan. 29. He was 101. Bennett was an iconic figure in the ski world, the one-time head of the U.S. Olympic alpine ski program, longtime manager at both the Sun Valley and White Pass ski resorts and a member of the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Hall of Fame.
