Dead snowboarder at Breckenridge identified

Authorities say have released the identity of a 27-year-old Federal Heights man who died while snowboarding at the Breckenridge ski area.

Summit County Coroner Joan Richardson Thursday identified the man as Todd Dunkel. Ski patrol members found Dunkel in some trees Wednesday while doing a final check of the slopes.

They tried to revive him, but determined he was dead. Richardson says Dunkel was originally from Iowa and had lived in Colorado for more than six months. His hometown in Iowa was not immediately available.

He had suffered a fractured neck.
