Family Sues After Death Of Child On Mt. Bachelor

BEND, Ore. (AP) – The parents of a 9-year-old child who died skiing at Mt. Bachelor ski area in Oregon last year have filed a $49 million wrongful death lawsuit against the resort and its parent company, Powdr Corp.

The Bulletin reports Angela and Brian Boice of Tacoma, Washington, filed the lawsuit this month over the death of Brecken, who slid down a ski run and crashed into rocks.

The suit alleges the day Brecken died conditions were extremely icy and that chairlift shouldn’t have been open.

Mt. Bachelor President John McLeod said everyone at the resort continues to convey their deepest condolences to Brecken’s family and that they can’t comment on specifics because of the litigation.
