Rachel Zoe Says She’s “Scarred for Life” After Son Fell 40 Feet From a Ski Lift

Skylar is "sore and banged up" but doing okay.

On Sunday, December 20th, Rachel Zoe’s 9-year-old son Skylar Morrison fell 40 feet from a ski lift while on a family ski trip. Thankfully, Sky seemingly suffered no injuries, but having seen her son fall left Zoe feeling “scarred for life.”

“I don’t typically share like this but I’m posting this to remind everyone how fragile life is and how it can turn in a minute,” Zoe posted to her Instagram story on December 21st. She shared a picture of Sky in the emergency room shortly after the fall. “The outcome is Sky is doing great and the bravest boy I’ve ever known but [husband Rodger Berman] and I are shattered and numb but woke up today with gratitude for a miracle that sky is safe and OK.”

In a followup text post on her Story, Zoe explained, “Sky fell 40 feet from a ski lift yesterday which could have been easily prevented if the operator had stopped the lift when he saw sky wasn’t on from the start and @rbermanus screaming to stop the lift.”

Needless to say by a miracle and the Ski patrol heroes who quickly put a mat under where they thought he would fall ultimately saved his life or from what could have happened, Zoe wrote.

Because of the quick response from ski patrol, Sky literally walked away just a bit “sore and banged up.” Zoe then posted a video of Sky from his bed rest, explaining to his mother’s followers that he is okay and showed them that he can get out bed and walk around just fine.

“[Rodger] and I have never been more grateful for seeing your child [do] the most simple tasks of walking talking and laughing,” Zoe continued in a separate post. “Truth be told Sky was more brave then…either of us and we continue to just kiss, hug and simply just stare at him until further notice…hug your babies extra from us today.”

Zoe and Berman also have a younger son Kaius Jagger, who celebrated his 7th birthday a little bit early last week, shortly before his brother’s incident. Luckily, Sky was able to celebrate alongside his brother (and help him blow out his candles).

What could have been a truly tragic event ended with a miracle. We’re so thankful Sky suffered no major injuries.
