A the elevator car crashed to the ground with a 17-year-old teenager, said the Maine ski resort.

The gondola cabin came off a rope at the Sunday River ski resort on Feb. 23, resort officials said. A gust of wind led to the fall.

“The cabin fell about 10 feet and was occupied by one guest who suffered minor injuries and was taken to the foot of the mountain by a ski patrol and released,” the resort said in a press release. “A 17-year-old guest, he was released to his parents.”

At this time, due to strong winds, the lift was unloaded. It ran at half speed.

All other skiers on the lift were safely unloaded.

The Sunday River Ski Resort is in Newry, about 75 miles north of Portland.
