An Albuquerque teen fell more than 40 feet from a Sante Fe ski lift as his friend caught it all on tape.

The teen was throwing snowballs at his friend when he slipped from the chair, catching himself on the arm rest. He was able to see the end of the ski lift, but was unable to hang on long enough to reach it. He fell approximately 40 feet and suffered a hairline skull fracture and a gash on his forehead.
