BLUFFDALE, Utah (AP) -- A seven-year-old boy is recovering in the hospital this morning after he fell and hit his head in his backyard.

Authorities say the boy was flown to Primary Children's Medical Center, where he's listed in stable condition.

The accident happened yesterday morning when the boy was swinging on a circular horse trainer.

Unified Fire Authority spokesman Jay Torgersen says the boy lost his grip on the rope, slipped and fell.
