In 2009, Kevin Pearce, then a champion snowboarder, suffered a near-fatal brain injury in a training accident.
His family rushed from their home in Hartland to his hospital bed in Utah. Amazingly, Pearce emerged from his coma and began the long road to recovery.
His father, glass artist Simon Pearce, his mother Pia, and three brothers formed an enduring support group. A new HBO film, “The Crash Reel,” tells the family’s story. It previews June 22 at the Hopkins Center at Dartmouth.
