Skiing Mishap Takes One Life
Anchorage Times records indicate one other death on the mountainside. (Mt. Alyeska)
An elderly man was killed and his wife injured Aug. 7, 1961, after he fell from a resort chairlift.
Arthur Weisman, 71, of Cincinnati, Ohio, died in Providence Hospital four hours after the accident. His wife was listed in satisfactory condition.
An Alaska State Trooper report said Weisman and his wife fell after his hat blew off as the lift approached a mountain-top platform and Weisman stood up to grab it.
