Woman buried in Utah avalanche
A 21-year-old Colorado woman is in critical condition after she was buried by an avalanche in Utah.
It happened in American Fork Canyon, near the Southeast corner of Salt Lake City.
Authorities say the woman was snow-shoeing in the area with five others when she was caught in the avalanche.
The wall of snow swept over her and carried her to a nearby creek.
Rescuers say the woman was trapped for at least 20 minutes, and her heart had stopped by the time they reached her.
