Mountain resort ski lift loses control violently tossing riders out of seats


WASHINGTON (Sinclair Broadcast Group) – Truly terrifying video emerged Friday of tourists getting flung from their seats on an out of control chairlift.

The incident occurred at the Gudauri resort in the country of Georgia.

The video shows the lift speeding up as individuals nearby shout at the skiers to jump from the lift.

Several times the chairlift rounds the bend at the base of the mountain and flings the skiers so forcefully they move out of the camera frame.

The chairs on the lift then begin to crash into one another and stack up at the base of the lift.

The Georgia Ministry of Internal Affairs dispatched emergency ski patrols to the scene and a helicopter transported the injured, according to the Telegraph.

There is an ongoing investigation into the incident. The report also states the Australian manufacturer of the lift stated they do not know what caused the accident. They also plan to dispatch a team to investigate at the resort.
