A hospital spokeswoman says some of the skiers who fell from a failed chair lift at one of Maine's most popular ski resorts were children.
Franklin Memorial Hospital spokeswoman Jill Gray says eight people were taken to her hospital from the Sugarloaf Resort in Carrabassett Valley.
That's where a 35-year-old chair lift set for upgrades or replacement failed Tuesday. It sent skiers plummeting as far as 30 feet (9 meters) into new-fallen snow.
Gray wouldn't comment on the patients' conditions but said they included children and adults. One person was transferred to Maine Medical Center in Portland.
The lift went into service in 1975 and recently passed an inspection. The resort says it was set for improvements but wouldn't say when.
