Our prayers on behalf of Edd and Nina, as well as all the entire Hendee family, on the loss of their son, Edd Jr.
A Connecticut man died on Saturday after he hit a tree while skiing on Stratton Mountain, according to the Winhall Police Department.
Edd K. Hendee, 33, of Riverside, Conn., was pronounced dead around noon on Saturday, police said.
Winhall Police Sgt. Thomas Crowe said Hendee had been on the mountain skiing with a friend. Around 11 a.m., Hendee took the North American Trail. The trail is rated for experts, but Hendee’s family and friends told police he was an expert skier.
Hendee was last seen at the top of the trail, but police believe he skied off the groomed trail and struck a large tree. He was not wearing a helmet.
Emergency responders were called around 11:10 a.m. and members of the Winhall Police Department, Stratton Mountain Rescue, and the Stratton Mountain Ski Patrol responded within two minutes, but Hendee was already in full cardiac arrest.
Resuscitation efforts were started immediately and continued for almost an hour on the mountain and at the Carlos Otis Medical Clinic at Stratton Mountain.
Hendee is survived by his wife, Claudine Hendee, and three children.
