Maryland Ski Hill Worker Hurt by Snow-Grooming Machine

December 21, 2009

A worker at the Wisp ski resort near McHenry is recovering from surgery after he was accidentally pulled under a snow-grooming machine.

Wisp Resort spokeswoman Lori Epp said Friday that the Oakland man’s injuries were not life-threatening.

She says he was working in a maintenance garage Thursday afternoon when he was somehow pulled beneath the rear of the machine. The snow groomer resembles a bulldozer.

Epp says the man was taken by first responders to Garrett Memorial Hospital and then to Ruby Memorial in Morgantown, W.Va., for surgery.
