A New Year's Eve ski run ended tragically for the son of Jenji Kohan, the creator of Weeds and Orange Is the New Black. TMZ reports that, per law enforcement officials, 20-year-old Charlie Noxon fell while skiing Tuesday in Park City, Utah, and was pronounced dead after being taken by helicopter to a nearby hospital. The Park Record reports only that an unnamed 20-year-old male from Sherman Oaks, Calif., died after an accident on an intermediate trail. It also cites a statement from a Park City Mountain Resort rep that offers "deepest sympathy and support to our guest's family and friends."

No other details of the accident are yet being reported. Charlie's short IMDb profile notes he appeared in a 2008 episode of Weeds. Per PopCulture.com, Kohan and journalist Christopher Noxon filed for divorce in 2018 after 21 years of marriage. The couple, who were said to have met at an adult kickball game, also have two other children, son Oscar and daughter Eliza. People reports that authorities are conducting an investigation into Charlie Noxon's accident, per a Summit County Sheriff’s Office official. (More death stories.)
