Las Vegas girl recovering after ski lift fall in Utah


BRIAN HEAD, Utah — A Las Vegas girl is recovering after being injured in a fall from a ski lift at a southern Utah resort.

Police said the 4-year-old girl was riding a “bunny hill” lift with an 8-year-old girl Friday afternoon at Brian Head Resort when their skis became tangled, causing the younger girl to fall.

She fell about 25 feet, landed on her feet and then fell backward, suffering serious leg and shoulder injuries, police said.

She was taken by medical helicopter to a St. George hospital with injuries that were not considered life threatening.

Her name was not immediately released.
