MERCERSBURG, Pa. - An Alexandria, Va., man died of an apparent broken neck Monday night while skiing on the beginner's slope at Whitetail Ski Resort, Pennsylvania State Police and ski resort officials said Tuesday.
Norman Carroll Koon, 59, was found by another skier Monday at about 6:30 p.m. just off the edge of the snow surface on Snow Park Trail, said Matt Sawyer, Whitetail's director of marketing and sales.
The Whitetail Ski Patrol arrived at the scene a minute after they were notified and administered CPR when Koon showed no signs of a pulse or respiration, Sawyer said.
