This week, tragedy hit the world of figure skating.
Alexandra Paul, a Canadian who used to skate in the Olympics, died in a car accident when she was 31 years old.
“The crash with several cars happened near Toronto on Tuesday. “A semi-truck crashed into a line of stopped cars in a construction zone, causing the accident,” TMZ Sports said.
“Her baby boy was in the car, and he was taken to the hospital with injuries that didn’t seem to be life-threatening. Three other people were hurt, and one of them was hurt so badly that he had to be flown to an emergency center. The world of figure skating is in a terrible state.
“This week, a car accident took the life of three-time Canadian medalist and 2010 World Junior silver winner Alexandra Paul. This is a terrible loss for figure skating. Her child was hurt, but it wasn’t bad enough to kill her. “Mitchell Islam and his family are in my thoughts and prayers,” one fan wrote.
“It is with a heavy heart that Skate Canada tells you that Alexandra Paul, a loved part of our skating community, passed away suddenly. “We are thinking of Alexandra’s family, friends, and anyone else who was lucky enough to know her,” said another fan.
“Alexandra Paul’s sudden and sad death in a car accident was a huge loss for the figure skating world. Mitch, his wife, Charlie, and all of their family and friends have my love. Fly high, Alex!” added another fan.
