While riding a ski lift on the Italian side of the Alps, a teenage girl fell to her death from a ski lift on Friday. It was unclear how the incident happened.

Since 1973, only 13 deaths have occurred from ski lift malfunctions or falls in the United States, according to NSAA. Although in most states ski resorts are not required to report ski lift fall accidents, in Colorado the law requires that ski resorts report any falls from ski lifts resulting in injury to the Colorado Passenger Tramway Board.
