You've made your way to the mountain for some late-season runs down the mountain. It's a nice sunny day. And then the ski lift goes berserk. This happened in Russia and caught on video.
Many passengers suffered various injuries. Those who risked jumping off the elevator, injured their legs. But you'll notice if they hsd not jumped, they would have been crushed into piled up metal seats.
According to eyewitnesses, the cableway could be stopped only a minute or two later. Rescuers arrived in seven minutes while eyewitnesses were doing their best to help the injured.
The accident occurred because of the negligence of chairlift workers, who caused the cable mechanism to malfunction and start working in the opposite direction.
Eight people were taken to the hospital
