FARMINGTON, Maine — Maine state authorities investigating the death of a Canadian man who died en route to the hospital after a skiing accident at Sugarloaf resort have cleared two responders.

The director of Maine Emergency Medical Services, a division of the state Department of Public Safety, told the Morning Sentinel that complaints were dismissed against two NorthStar ambulance employees because they arrived at the scene at the end of the call and did not participate in patient care.

Director Jay Bradshaw did not disclose names.

The agency launched an investigation into the Jan. 12 death of 41-year-old David Morse of Harmony, Nova Scotia, after his wife complained about the care he got in an ambulance on the way to Franklin Memorial Hospital.

Bradshaw says the investigation continues.
