We reported this weekend about the unfortunate accident at Alta Ski Resort where a 4-year old girl fell off the chairlift.  Well today, TSC has good news to report, as she has been released from the hospital, and she has no injuries except a minor concussion.  The girl is believed to have fallen 30-40 feet off the chairlift on Saturday, and had to be revived by CPR.  Officials have said that she landed in the powder rather than a packed ski run, and this could have helped break her fall and save her life.
