Yesterday a 4 year old girl riding a chairlift at the Alta ski resort with an unknown woman fell 30 to 40 feet below and was rendered unconscious and stopped breathing.  Ski Patrol performed CPR and revived her.  She went in and out of consciousness numerous times afterward being flown to Primary Children’s Medical Center in Salt Lake City.  She is in serious condition.

The girl whose name is being withheld is landed in powder.  All thoughts are with her and her family right now.  More to come as it becomes available.
