Snowboarder Dies After Incident On Mt Charleston

No Word Yet On What Exactly Happened

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Authorities have identified a 20-year-old Las Vegas man who died in a snowboarding accident at a southern Nevada ski resort.

Clark County coroner’s officials say Christopher Jeffery Ruby died at University Medical Center after incident midday Tuesday at the Las Vegas Ski & Snowboard Resort.

The cause of death and the nature of the accident weren’t immediately clear.

He died a few hours after being airlifted to the hospital.

Officials from the resort issued a statement saying staff members were devastated by the accident, and their thoughts and prayers were with Ruby’s family.
