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.”

The man, in his early 20s, fell 10-feet to the ground and suffered serious rib injuries. Other riders on the lift were not affected.

The lift at the Vail Resorts owned ski area will remain closed while a full investigation is conducted.
