A man suffered serious injuries after falling almost 10-feet from a ski lift chair at Wildcat Mountain in New Hampshire.
The incident happened Saturday on the Snowcat triple chair, reports State Fire Marshal Sean Toomey.
“It started as a misload of a chair, and the chair began to swing. It hit the tower right as it started to head up the mountain, and it detached from the cable.”
