    Heavenly sued Over Chairlift Death

    SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. (AP) - A family has sued a Lake Tahoe ski resort and other companies over the death of a man who fell from a chairlift at the resort.

    Defendants named in the lawsuit filed Thursday in El Dorado County Superior Court include Heavenly Mountain Resort, Terra-Nova LLC and Sampson Rope Technologies.

    Rebecca, Patrick and Bryan Dickson seek unspecified damages in connection with the Aug. 31 death of 51-year-old Mark Dickson.

    According to the suit, he died after falling from Heavenly's Tamarack Express chairlift, which became entangled with a rope retrieval line from the resort's new ZipRider zip line ride.

    The accident also seriously injured Dickson's wife of one month, 47-year-old Rebecca.

    Heavenly officials declined to comment.
