Skiers were helplessly hurled off their chairs from a terribly malfunctioning ski lift in Gudauri, Georgia.
Shocking videos from bystanders and people on the lifts have been making the news and video cycles since the incident happened on Friday, March 17, 2018.
The lift in question was seen running at a very high speed for a lift – resulting in the skiers being hurled off their seats and unto the snow-covered ground.
The motor kept running and chairs started crashing into each other and hitting and narrowly missing several skiers that were hurled off their seats.
According to the Georgian Minister of Health, Labor and Social Affairs, Davit Sergeenko, a total of eight people were taken to a hospital in Gudauri, but one was quickly discharged.
Got passed this video by a friend. Can anyone verify where this is? Don’t know about you guys but I hate the ski lift because of things I thought were imaginary and then I see this pic.twitter.com/Lvg9mQKJbE
