State regulators and Sugar Bowl ski resort operators are investigating the fall of a boy from a chairlift on Sunday.
The 7-year-old boy, who was not identified by officials of the Donner Summit-area resort, fell from the Mt. Lincoln Express chairlift about 11:15 a.m. Sunday. The boy, a member of the Sugar Bowl Ski Team, was riding with two other ski team members on the lift.
The resort ski patrol immediately responded to the scene and the boy was transported Renown Regional Medical Center in Reno by helicopter.
"The entire Sugar Bowl community sends its thoughts and prayers to the injured boy and his family," stated a press release from the resort.
No other information was available this morning.
