Authorities in Utah say a 4-year-old girl has been hospitalized after falling 30 feet to 40 feet from a chairlift at a ski area.

Unified Fire Authority Capt. Clint Smith says the girl fell Saturday afternoon at the Alta Ski Area.

The girl was found facedown and not breathing but members of a ski patrol revived her with CPR.

Smith says the girl has been taken to Primary Children's Medical Center in Salt Lake City. Authorities say she was in serious condition.
