Brit in ski lift death plunge

Sunday Mirror - - FRONT PAGE -

A BRIT died af­ter hav­ing a sus­pected heart at­tack and fall­ing more than 30ft from a ski chair­lift.

Jeff Martin, 65, was with a friend when he had a seizure on Fri­day.

It is not known if a safety bar was locked down.

A spokesman for moun­tain res­cue at the Meri­bel re­sort in France said: “The friend thought the vic­tim was jok­ing around but he was suf­fer­ing a heart at­tack. They had only just de­parted on the lift.”

Mr Martin, a keen sailor from Fal­mouth, Corn­wall, was on hol­i­day with fam­ily. IT’S not long now be­fore Do­ria Ragland be­comes a grand­mother – with daugh­ter Meghan ex­pect­ing her first baby with Prince Harry in the spring.

For now, though, we reckon the 62-year-old yoga in­struc­tor is prac­tis­ing her child’s pose. She was spot­ted with her car keys af­ter teach­ing a class in LA.
