 SANTA FE, N.M. — A teenager who fell 45 feet from a New Mexico ski lift says he was falling straight toward a big rock and was sure he would die.

 

Seventeen-year-old Jacob Gutierrez, of Albuquerque, told the Santa Fe New Mexican (http://bit.ly/ZwYveV ) he was throwing a snowball at a friend in the chair in front of him when he slipped off.

 

A YouTube video of the Feb. 2 fall at Ski Santa Fe has gone viral.
