US skier injured in escalator fall


Associated Press

PARK CITY, Utah U.S. alpine skier Cody Marshall has a head injury after falling between 20 to 30 feet from an escalator.

U.S. Ski Team spokesman Tom Kelly says the 26-year-old Marshall was out with teammates when he fell off the escalator rail about 12 a.m. Thursday in a mini-mall in downtown Park City, Utah. He was taken by ambulance to University Hospital in Salt Lake City with a head injury.
There was no word on his condition Thursday afternoon.
Marshall, from Pittsfield, Vt., finished third at the U.S. Alpine Championships this spring. His sister, Chelsea, is also a member of the U.S. alpine team and older brother, Jesse, is a former member.
