A New Jersey college student died after hitting her head while snowboarding at a popular Poconos resort.
The Rutgers University - New Brunswick student Euna Shin died Thursday after being transported from Blue Mountain Resort to Lehigh Valley Hospital - Cedar Crest, Lehigh Valley Coroner Scott Grim said.
The 20-year-old from Piscataway was snowboarding at the ski resort in Lower Towamensing Township when she struck her head around 4:30 p.m. Wednesday.
