The PR guru was showing off his skills on the slopes last week when one of his ski boots slipped off, with errant ski still attached.
In what was probably not one of his brightest ideas, Monty reached out to grab the razor-sharp ski as it passed and in doing so sliced open his hand, severing an artery. Ouch.
He was airlifted to the local hospital before having to return from holiday early, nursing a rather large bandage.
Mole was particularly concerned when he heard this, as Mortgage Strategy acting editor Robert Thickett is currently on the slopes in Austria honing his rusty skills.
The hapless hack hasn’t skied for more than 10 years so Strategy hackettes are crossing their fingers he makes it back on one piece.
