At the Ski Sundown area in New Hartford, Connecticut yesterday, and 8-year-old boy fell from a chairlift.

A Life Star helicopter was called at 4:47 PM, but when ambulance volunteers  and rescue crews arrived on scene, they called off the chopper. The boy, whose name was not released, fell more than 10 feet, but his injuries are not expected to be life threatening.

He is now being treated at the Charlotte Hungerford Hospital. We hope he makes a full and speedy recovery.
