A 7-year-old boy who fell from a chairlift at Sugar Bowl Resort on Sunday has died of his injuries.
Officials of the Donner Summit-area resort announced the youngster's death in a news release this afternoon. They have not identified the boy.
About 11:15 a.m. Sunday, the boy, a member of the Sugar Bowl Ski Team, fell from the Mount Lincoln Express Chairlift. He was riding on the lift with two other ski team members.
The resort ski patrol immediately responded to the scene and the boy was transported by helicopter to Renown Regional Medical Center in Reno, where he underwent surgery.
State regulators and Sugar Bowl operators are investigating the fall.
"The entire Sugar Bowl community extends our heartfelt thoughts and prayers, love and support to the boy's family," states the news release from the resort.
