HIDDEN VALLEY, Pa. - A 10-year-old girl has been injured after falling about 15 feet from a chair lift at a southwestern Pennsylvania ski resort. Hidden Valley vice president of resort operations Scott Bender said the girl was riding with two friends on a four-passenger chair lift shortly after 5 p.m. Wednesday at the Somerset County resort. Bender said she fell just in front of the unloading station as the girls were raising a metal restraining bar over their heads in preparation for getting off the lift. Bender said that the girl's mother called 911 and that an ambulance was dispatched from nearby Bakersville. But the resort's safety patrol took the girl on a toboggan to resort headquarters at the base of the mountain, where a helicopter took her to Memorial Medical Center in Johnstown. Bender said that the girl never lost consciousness, and that the flight was a precaution.
