Rachel Zoe Says She's 'Scarred For Life' After Son's Accident

Every parent will hug their child a little bit tighter after hearing about stylist-to-the-stars Rachel Zoe's terrifying incident with her 9-year-old son, Skyler. As the fashionista recounted via her Instagram Story over the weekend, the youngster was taken to the emergency room after falling a harrowing 40 feet from a ski lift (via People). While it's not known exactly where the mom, her husband Rodger Berman, and their younger son, 7-year-old Kaius were vacationing, according to Fox News the incident appears to have happened in Aspen, Colorado.

Zoe shared details about the scary accident, writing, "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." Thankfully, and amazingly, the boy was not seriously hurt, with Zoe also sharing, "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."
