Young boy injured in fall from ski lift

Posted under Premises Liability

An 8-year-old boy suffered serious injuries after falling from a ski lift at Spirit Mountain in Duluth, the Twin Cities Pioneer Press reported on March 1.

The young boy, Cameron Jones, fell over 20 feet from a ski chair lift. According to his mother Donna Jones, Cameron incurred great injuries, including a fractured pelvis, rib, radius, and ulna, as well as a liver laceration and more. At one point after the fall, the boy was unconscious. Donna asserted that if Cameron had not been wearing a helmet, he would have had even worse injuries or even died. Emergency responders arrived soon and Cameron’s condition is stable.

The boy’s fall was actually the second one of the day at Spirit Mountain. According to authorities, the two falls were unrelated.

Any injury on another person’s property, such as a privately or publicly owned ski mountain, might mean that a property owner was somehow negligent.
