Empty ski lift chair falls from cable at Mount Bachelor

BEND, Ore. (AP) — Ski area employees at Mount Bachelor are trying to figure out why an empty ski lift chair fell off its cable.

KTVZ-TV reported that the chair had just left the upper terminal of the Sunrise Express lift and was headed downhill when the chair fell about 20 feet to the snow.

Nobody was hurt. The ski area closed the lift for the day.
