This is insane
About as functional as our attack. Lucky escape for many of those people.
You would have thought there would be an emergency stop button or something
At least the ski lift seemed threatening.
that's true. Much like our players though, the passengers didn't seem to agree with the system.
What is weird is people deciding just to ride it out, it's not like they can't see what is going on judging from all the people jumping ship.
There usually is, usually multiple failsafes on lifts so not sure what’s gone on here.
I know it's not supposed to be funny but one guy got launched into the air by that lift.
It's quite funny alright.
Hopefully everybody made it alive though.
I laughed my ass off.....hope he is OK though.
So. Theories about why the feck they were getting a ski lift down the mountain?
Another video of it.
Got a fecking lift alright
My crazy theory is that there might have been something wrong with the lift and it started going backwards.
That was painful to watch. Is it so hard to use landscape mode?
Holy shit those guys at 33 seconds in
The dude that didn't jump..
Shock causes you to do crazy things
Is it just me or is that ski lift set to turbo mode?
Yeah it was going way too fast.
Waiting for a survivable drop
I could see that 1 guy didn't jump and got mangled in the mess.. I hope he is ok..
Only just realised it’s going backwards! Feck that. Must have made it even more scary/difficult to bail.
How do you make a vertical video that is not even vertical?
Apparently nobody died.
Nobody even badly hurt. Worst injury was a broken hand according to Torygraph article above.
That guy at 0:15 spared himself a decapitation with that reaction.
I would have thought it made it much easier to bail.
Harder to time it when you’re looking over your shoulder/through your legs to judge the height.
True but imagine trying to bail out of the front in ski gear with it going at that speed. Those things are hard to get off at normal speed.
I’ve jumped off a ski lift going forward. I’d much rather do it forward than backwards it’s way less awkward.
And the wrong way. The idea is to get up, not down.
Outstanding! Amazed there wasn't a simple way to switch it off. Like an escalator. A big red button.
There are like 8, and they all must have failed. Maintenance was clearly not a priority here.
It is/was the #1 trending thing on social media yesterday.
And basically a played out summary of the Trump administration.
Hopefully the big red button there is just decorative too.
As a skier that's properly toe curling watching that Not good for any skiing newbies as chair lifts can be quite tricky for new skiers who are still mastering the snow plough!
