A 17-year-old New Jersey teenager has died following a fall from a chairlift on New Years Day at Blue Mountain Resort, PA.

Connor Golembiewski of Flemington, NJ, died from multiple blunt force trauma injuries after he fell 37 feet from the chairlift onto rocks below.

State police were investigating whether his lap bar was up or down.

This is the third death at Blue Mountain Resort, PA in the past year. On January 21, 2018 Grygoriy Sologub, 53, of Philadelphia died following a collision with another skier.  Euna Shin, 20, of Piscataway, New Jersey, died from injuries sustained while snowboarding at the resort later that same season.

The death was ruled an accident.
