Emily Watts' aunt has said that she believes her niece is not likely to recover after suffering a cardiac arrest in the French Alps.
Shona Pollock said that Emily's brain was starved of oxygen for around 45 minutes before a rescue team reached her. "She's on a life support machine but it won't be for long," she said.
Ms Pollock described Emily as "outgoing" and "plucky" and said that she loves the mountains.
