The video game I’m working on, skate, features over a dozen pro skateboarders. One of them is Ali Boulala. Two weeks ago, Boulala was involved in a traffic accident in Australia. He was on a motorcycle and the accident claimed the life of another skateboarder on the bike. Shane Cross was killed but Boulala survived.
Boulala was left with a skull fracture and was put in a coma to help his recovery. Just a few days ago, he brought out of that coma and it looks like he’ll pull through. There’s no telling when he’ll be back on his board. At least in our game, he’s still pulling off crazy tricks. Let’s hope he gets better soon.
