Celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe’s young son Skyler is recovering after plummeting 40 feet from a ski chair lift in Colorado.
Zoe, husband Rodger Berman and sons Sykler, 9, and Kaius, 7, were on the first day of their winter vacation when the accident happened. Posting a photo Monday of Skyler in a hospital bed, Zoe called her son “the bravest boy I’ve ever known” but admitted that she and her husband are “shattered and numb.”
“Sky fell 40 feet from a chair life 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,” Zoe, 52, told her Instagram followers.
She said by a miracle — and the ski patrol who placed a mat under where Sky fell — her son survived.
She added: “Sky is in great spirits but sore and banged up a bit otherwise a brave champion. Mom and Dad scarred for life.”
Zoe — whose coterie of clients and famous pals include Kate Hudson and Cameron Diaz — later posted video of Sky walking about as he said: “I’m just a little sore, I’m kind of hurting, but I’m fine.”
She wrote: “@rbermanus and I have never been more grateful for seeing your child so the most simple tasks of walking talking and laughing…truth be told Sky was more brave than either of us and we continue to just kiss, buge and simply stare at him until further notice. ..hug your babies extra from us today.”
