SPOKANE — A 10-year-old boy fell about 20 feet Thursday from a chairlift at Mount Spokane.
KHQ reports (http://nbcnews.to/1iTkgMG ) he landed in snow and did not appear to have any serious injuries, although he complained of back pain.
The Ski Patrol responded and Medstar flew him off the mountain to a hospital.
Mount Spokane Ski and Snowboard Park said the chairlift was operating normally at the time.
