Hanover, New Hampshire ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) - A Ketchum native passed away Saturday while competing at the Vermont Carnival. Torin Tucker, 20 was a junior at Dartmouth in Hanover, New Hampshire. He died while competing for the Big Green Cross Country skiing event in Craftsbury, Vermont.

Dartmouth spokesman Rick Bender said Tucker died at the scene after several attempts to resuscitate him failed. The cause of death is still under investigation.

“The thoughts of Dartmouth athletics are with Torin’s family, friends, and the entire Dartmouth community on this sad day,” said Dartmouth Director of Athletics and Recreation Harry Sheehy.

“We urge students, faculty, and staff who would like to speak to a counselor or chaplain, on their own behalf or out of concern for someone else to contact Safety and Security at any hour,” President Hanlon said. “Please do not hesitate to seek help during this time of grief.”

The Dartmouth ski team has returned to campus and will not compete in the remainder of the Vermont Carnival.
