KEYSTONE, Colo. (AP) – A Colorado coroner has released the name of a Georgia man who died Sunday while skiing at Keystone Ski Resort.

Summit County Coroner Joanne Richardson says the man was 58-year-old Odo Lessacher of Griffin, Ga.
Richardson says in a statement that the man was found in the trees at the intersection of two intermediate runs on North Peak.

Ski patrol responded to the scene and administered CPR at about 10 a.m., after a report from a bystander. Lessacher was declared dead by a Care Flight nurse.

Richardson says the cause of death was internal bleeding and blunt force trauma to the chest. She says Lessacher wasn’t wearing a helmet.
