CARRABASSETT VALLEY, Maine (NEWS CENTER) - The Maine Game Wardens say that the teenager who was lost on Sugarloaf will not be charged for the rescue.
Wardens say the price of the rescue was between $10,000-$15,000. They believe Nicholas Joy accidentally went off the trial at Sugarloaf and did everything he was supposed to do to stay alive.
The 17-year-old skier from Medford, Mass was skiing with his family at Sugarloaf on Sunday when he went out of bounds around noon. 9:00am Tuesday morning, Joseph Paul, a snowmobiler from Massachusetts, found Joy after following footprints that ended near Caribou Pond Road. There, Paul found Joy walking around.
Joy was kept overnight at the hospital and was released the next day. He didn't suffer any injuries.
