KILLINGTON, Vt. (AP) — A New York man has died in a skiing accident at Vermont’s Killington Resort.

Vitale went into cardiac arrest while being taken to the hospital, where he later died.

The accident happened the same day a power outage temporarily shut down lifts at the resort. Some skiers and riders spent more than an hour on a gondola lift before it was brought back online.
