Sommet Morin Heights Chair Lift Death

Quebec police are investigating the death of a 15-year-old following a Friday night fall from a ski lift at Sommet Morin Heights, a community ski hill in the town of Morin-Heights, about 70 kilometres northwest of Montreal.

It’s always disheartening when accidents like this happen, especially involving young individuals. The boy fell just before 10 p.m. provincial police (SQ) spokesperson Camille Savoie confirmed.

Paramedics and resort staff performed resuscitation maneuvers before the boy was rushed to hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The SQ is investigating and says the incident appears to be an unfortunate accident.
