5-year-old accidentally catches huge air skiing while horrified dad watches

New, comments

This has to be one of the most helpless, heart-sinking feelings a parent can have. Here you are hitting the slopes with your kids and hoping to have an afternoon of fun — then your 5-year-old is hurtling towards a huge jump and there’s nothing you can do.

“Turn, turn!” the father yells while his 5-year-old son speeds past him. He tries to call out to him “STOP!” he yells, haplessly — before saying “HOLY SHIT!” for good measure because hey, your kid is about to go off a jump someone three times his age would be scared of.

It’s here we jump forward to after young Deegan’s incredible jump. The kid isn’t rattled, he’s just laughing. This is one of the coolest things he’s done and his dad is just happy he has the moment on camera. So kudos to Deegan for being a badass, and if you’re a 5-year-old reading this then:

1. Congrats on being able to read so well.

2. Ignore that part where I wrote “HOLY SHIT,” that’s an adult word.
