PROVO, Utah (AP) -- A 12-year-old Spanish Fork Boy Scout was injured while sledding down a snow field near Mount Nebo and was carried out by rescuers.

Utah County sheriff's officers says the youth had cuts on his head and face and some of his teeth were broken in the accident just before one p.m. Saturday.

The accident happened at ten-thousand, 700 feet in the Wolf Pass area.

After the boy was transported out by horseback, a Juab County ambulance took him to Mountain View Hospital in Payson.

Sheriff's Sergeant Tom Hodgson said the youth was tired and hot, but otherwise in good spirits and good condition.
