A mom of two died when she and her two daughters fell 25-feet off of a ski-lift in Colorado on Thursday morning, according to police.
Kelly Huber, 40, and her two daughters, 9 and 12 years old, were vacationing from Texas when the fall occurred at the Ski Granby Branch, reports said.
Huber was pronounced dead at the hospital a short time later while her 12-year-old daughter has since been treated and released from the hospital. Her 9-year-old daughter was injured as well but her condition remains unknown.
Authorities said they are not sure what caused the fall and they are investigating.
It’s reportedly the first chairlift fall in Colorado in 14 years and the resort’s first-ever.
“It’s really important to understand how rare something like this is,” he said of such falls. “It’s always tragic when there’s a serious injury or fatality, but ... these don’t happen very often,” said Chris Linsmayer, spokesman for Colorado Ski Country USA.
