Snowmobiler Injured in 50-foot fall

A 45-year-old man is recovering at the University of Utah Hospital after a snowmobile accident in Wasatch County Saturday afternoon.

Search and rescue crews found the man in the Soapstone area of Wasatch county in a 50-foot sink hole.

Sheriff's deputies say the man was snowmobiling with a friend when he fell in the whole, which might be an abandoned mine shaft.

His friend called 911, and crews reached the man in less than an hour.
