Boys Varsity Ice Hockey
WOLFEBORO — It was a typical day in the life of an active nine-year-old in Wolfeboro.
There was a few hockey games with his Back Bay Squirt team in the Pop Whalen Arena. And then a few runs on the slopes of Abenaki Ski Area.
But that's where things took a dramatic turn for Grady Steele.
The Carpenter School third grader was racing a friend down the slope when he turned around to see where his friend was. He lost control and crashed head first into a tree.
"It was terrifying," said Grady's mom, Liz Venus, who was at the ski area when the accident happened and witnessed her son crash into the tree.
Miraculously enough, just a few short weeks later, Grady was back in school with his classmates and his parents were grateful to the entire community for the love and support shown to them and their son during what can only be described as a tough few weeks.
