    Blue Mountain Death

    https://www.poconorecord.com/news/20...-blue-mountain

    Condolences to the family.
    Appears to be a fall from a lift.

    That's 3 deaths in less than a year at Blue, very sad.

    Gee, he's from pretty close to where I live. Apparently this happened on the 6-pack & there was 1 other person on the chair.

    I’ve historically been lax about dropping the bar but I’m trying to be better about it, especially riding alone. I’m too comfortable on the chair leaning forward a lot. Bad habit.

    I'm seeing comments in the article from nj.com where people are saying they heard he potentially had a seizure while on the chair and that resulted in the fall. Very tragic.

    I was at Bolton Valley a couple of years ago when some one fell from the lift because he had a seizure and didn't have the bar down. My 18 year old son was a head of me and saw it happen and was one of the 1st to come across him.

    Might not help for a seizure, but just put the bar down. I don't get it.

    Thread title would be a pretty sweet band name.
