The boy, from Westminster, Mass., was riding the Minuteman chairlift at the Massachusetts ski and snowboard resort when he fell 20 feet from the lift at approximately 9:15 p.m. Sunday. Ski area officials indicate that the safety bar may not have been lowered on the chair that the boy was riding in.

The victim, who holds a season pass at Wachusett, was transported via ambulance to an area hospital, where he was treated for non-life threatening injuries.
