The 52-year-old opened up about the scary situation in a series of Instagram Story posts on Monday.

Rachel first shared a picture of Skyler in a hospital bed, which she captioned: “So I don’t typically share like this but I’m posting this to remind everyone how fragile life is and how it can turn in a minute….

“This is Sky yesterday in the ER and I will share what happened when I feel more ready. The outcome is Sky is doing great and the bravest boy I’ve ever known but @rbermanus and I are shattered and numb but woke up for a miracle that Sky is safe and OK.”

The designer shares Skylar with husband Rodger Berman.

She posted another Instagram Story a few hours later, which read: “I have never felt more love from so many of you. Sky read every message and is so happy and grateful as am I. It meant everything to feel the love and healing coming this way… many of you are asking what happened and in short without too much detail that I will share when ready here it is…”

A third text post revealed: “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 his life or from what could have happened.”

She then updated her fans on how her son is doing, writing: “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…”

After he shared he’s “okay” and “just sore,” Sky got out of the hospital bed as he said: “To show you I’m okay I’m gonna stand up- see look, I can stand up. And I can walk and I’m totally fine.”

He added: “I’m kind of hurting, but I’m fine.”

The series of posts concluded with a text post, which read: “@rbermanus and I have never been more grateful for seeing your child so the most simple tasks of walking talking and laughing…

“Truth be told Sky was more brave then either of us and we continue to just kiss, hug and simple just stare at him until further notice…

“Hug your babies extra for us today.”

In addition to Skyler, Rachel and Rodger are also the parents to seven-year-old son Kaius.
