NEWRY, Maine — A Maine ski resort said a teenage skier suffered minor injuries when a ski lift cabin fell due to a gust of wind.

Representatives for Sunday River said the accident happened on Wednesday night. They said the 17-year-old guest was riding in the cabin when a high gust of wind caused it to detach from a haul rope.

The cabin fell about 10 feet, representatives said. They said the skier was taken to the base of the mountain by ski patrol and then released to a parent.

All other guests who were on the lift were safely unloaded, but night skiing was suspended, representatives said.
