The 52-year-old assured fans that Skyler was doing great and praised him for his impressive courage. She then got candid about how she and her husband, Rodger Berman, felt about the experience. In her words:

"@rbermanus and I are shattered and numb but woke up today with gratitude for a miracle that Ski is safe and Ok."

In a follow-up post, Zoe detailed what happened, writing, her 9-year-old son fell 40 feet from a ski lift. According to her, the mishap could have been prevented if the operator had stopped the lift when he noticed that Skyler wasn't on from the start.

The update was followed by a video of a recovering Skyler in his pajamas as he waved.

She wrote that Berman was screaming for the lift to be stopped, but that didn't get the operator's attention. Luckily, the doting parents witnessed their son experienced a miracle.

She wrote that the ski patrols quickly placed a mat where they believed Skyler would fall to, and that was the gesture that saved her son from what could have happened. She concluded:

"Sky is in great spirits but sore and banged up a bit but otherwise a brave champion, Mom and Dad [are] scarred for life."

The update was followed by a video of a recovering Skyler in his pajamas as he waved and assured his mother's fans that he was in good spirits. The adorable boy told fans that he was okay but just feeling sore.

He then stood from his bed to prove that all was indeed well. Zoe, who also shares 7-year-old Kaius Jagger with Berman, an investment banker, concluded her post on her grateful note.
