UTAH COUNTY, Utah, Jan. 31, 2021 (Gephardt Daily) — Utah County Search and Rescue¬† volunteers and Life Flight responded to Aspen Grove on Sunday evening, where a 19-year-old woman fell, apparently while skiing.

Sgt. Spencer Cannon, with the Utah County Sheriff’s Office, told Gephardt Daily the young woman fell about 10 feet and is having difficulty breathing because of the back injury she sustained in the fall.

“Life Flight is hoping to hoist her out,” Cannon said. “Avalanche danger is high.”

Gephardt Daily will update this developing story as more information becomes available.
