A woman is dead after a fall at a Colorado ski resort in which she and two underage kids tumbled from a ski lift.
Police said it happened around 9:30 a.m. Thursday at the small ski resort, which is about 20 miles west of Winter Park. One of the children was hospitalized in stable condition and the other was flown to Children's Hospital in suburban Denver for treatment, according to police. The Granby Police Department is investigating the incident with the assistance of the Grand County Sheriff's Office, Granby Ranch and the Colorado Passenger Tramway Safety Board.
This is the first chairlift fall death in Colorado in 14 years, reports the Post.
A relative told KTLA sister station KDVR in Denver that the father of the woman who was killed flew to Denver from San Antonio - where the family was from - on Thursday night.
Her daughters, ages 9 and 12, were both transported to the hospital.
Their names haven't been released.
Schelly Olson, spokeswoman for the incident command, said the family fell between the lift loading spot and the summit - and that there were many witnesses to the horrific accident.
