Orange Is the New Black creator Jenji Kohan's son Charlie Noxon has died. Charlie, 20, passed away from injuries sustained in a skiing accident on New Year's Eve in Utah, reported Variety. "Our hearts are shattered. Our dear boy Charlie Noxon died on New Year's Eve on a ski slope in Park City. The cliches about moments like this are true, it turns out.
The one about life forever changing in a split second, about the fact that we are all bound up in a web of love and loss, about the primacy of community in times of unfathomable tragedy," Kohan and Charlie's father, journalist Christopher Noxon, said in a joint statement.
According to multiple reports, Charlie was skiing down an intermediate run when he hit a sign while attempting to navigate a fork in the trail. Medical personnel reportedly airlifted Charlie to a nearby hospital, where he later died.
Charlie was vacationing in Park City with his father and two younger siblings when the accident occurred.
