SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. (AP) - Authorities have confirmed a
34-year-old British man was killed while snowboarding last week at
Lake Tahoe's Heavenly Mountain Resort.

El Dorado County Sheriff's deputies say Christopher Michael
Perring of Great Britain tried to avoid running into someone else
but hit a sign post and suffered blunt force trauma to his chest at
about 3 p.m. last Tuesday.

Lt. Les Lovell says Perring was taken to the Sky Meadows area of
the resort for medical treatment, but was pronounced dead before an
emergency medical helicopter could arrive.
