This past Saturday a four-year old girl fell from a ski chairlift at about 4:30 p.m. A skier witnessed the girl fall from a chairlift and called it in. The girl fell from the Sunnyside lift about 30-35 feet at Alta Ski Resort. Alta is located just 25 miles southeast of Salt Lake City at the top of Little Cottonwood Canyon.
When ski patrol arrived, the girl was not breathing and was unconscious. Ski patrol was able to revive the child after performing CPR and took her to the landing zone for life flight at the resort. The child was taken by a medical helicopter to Primary Children’s Medical Center in critical condition. The girl has since been updated to serious condition.
