Olympics: Scary crash in women's luge

AMERICAN luger Emily Sweeney crashed out of the PyeongChang Olympics on Tuesday, losing control of her sled midway through the final run of the competition.

The American lost control midway through her run and proceeded to bounce off the walls in terrifying fashion. The crowds went from loud cheers to shocked silence as the impact caused Sweeney to fly off of her luge sled and go sliding across the ice.

But Sweeney flashed a quick smile to reassure her fans as she walked along the track to the Olympic Village clinic for further examination.
