Zoe didn’t not say where the accident happened, but earlier this weekend she posted the view from an airplane window which was tagged from Colorado.

She held back on details initially, telling followers: ‘The outcome is Sky is doing great and the bravest boy I’ve ever known.

But [husband Rodger Berman] and I are shattered and numb but woke up today with gratitude for a miracle that Sky is safe and OK.’

Several hours later, she opened up about the harrowing incident telling followers:  ‘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.’

‘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.’

‘Sky is in great spirits but sore and banged up a bit but otherwise a brave champion. Mom and Dad scarred for life but Sky wanted to say this,’ she said before sharing video of a cheery – but sore – Skyler walking around their hotel room. 

‘Hi everyone. I’m okay, just sore,’ he told people in the clip.

‘To show you that I’m okay, I’m gonna stand up — see look, I can stand up — and I can walk. See, I’m totally fine, it’s just I’m a little sore and I’m kinda hurting, but I’m fine.’ 

Brave: 'Sky is in great spirits but sore and banged up a bit but otherwise a brave champion. Mom and Dad scarred for life but Sky wanted to say this,' she said

She finished with another text post, writing how ‘grateful’ she and husband Rodger, who she also shares seven-year-old son Kaius with, were to see their son do ‘the most simple tasks of walking talking and laughing.’ 

‘Truth be told Sky was more brave then [sic] either of us and we continue to just kiss, hug and simply just stare at him until further notice … hug your babies extra from us today.’

Zoe and Berman have been married since 1998, but didn’t start their family until years later, welcoming Skyler in 2011 and Kaius in 2013.
