The Ski Patrol at Snow Trails helped save a man's life during the Big Air event Saturday night.

Ski Patrol member Bill Baldosser was there at the time. He says the older man was found lying motionless on the hill, the victim of an apparent heart attack.

The Ski Patrol sprang into action, discovered he was not breathing and had no pulse, and started CPR as they loaded him onto a sled and took him down the hill. A Washington Township rescue squad was already there as a precaution for the event, and took him to MedCentral Mansfield Hospital. He was resusitated and is said to be okay.

 Snow Trails has 100 volunteer Ski Patrol members, with nine on duty at the time. General Manager Scott Crispl is impressed with their reaction to the man's plight.

 Crislip wants Snow Trails patrons to have fun, but also to know skiing, snowboarding, and tubing are risky activities and the resort has a well-trained Ski Patrol to come to the rescue when an accident or medical emergency occurs.
