A British woman skiing in the French Alps has died after collapsing in a ski lift.
Cheryl Fairbrother, 45, became dizzy while sitting next to her daughter Jade, 19, on the ski lift at Monetier"s L"Yret in Serre Chevalier, south-east France.
Attempts were made at the summit to resuscitate the mother-of-two from Yorkshire but she died before reaching the hospital.
The family, who described Cheryl as fit and healthy, told the Daily Mail they were not aware of any conditions but that the altitude may not have helped.
