Snowboarder Dies From Injuries Suffered In Fall

JOHNSTOWN, Pa. (AP) – A snowboarder who suffered a head injury last week at a Pennsylvania resort has died.

Matthew Camacho-Cook was injured on Dec. 27 at Seven Springs Mountain Resort in Somerset County when he lost control and fell at the bottom of a trail.

The Cambria County coroner’s office tells KDKATV that the 35-year-old Crescent resident died Thursday morning at Conemaugh Hospital in Johnstown.

Authorities say Camacho Cook was wearing a helmet at the time he was injured.

It’s the second death in less than a week at a Pennsylvania ski resort. A teenager from Flemington, N.J., died after falling off a chairlift at Blue Mountain Resort near Palmerton in the Poconos.

In February 2016, a 51- year-old man died at Seven Springs when another skier collided with him.
