Terrifying footage shows the moment of a horrific ski lift malfunction that left eight people injured.
Skiers went flying from a chairlift at a European Ski resort this Friday when a fault caused the lift to go twice its speed.
Panicked screams can be heard amid the carnage as horrified witnesses watch chairlifts smash into one another after hurtling wildly downhill. The lifts speed increased due to a damage ropeway and appeared to be running backwards.
Some terrified skiers appeared to jump off the lift themselves, judging by videos of the incident captured by onlookers.
Georgian media said eight people had received minor injuries but it was also reported two people including a pregnant woman were seriously hurt and taken to hospital.
They also reported that any medical costs incurred from the accident will be reimbursed. Alright I want to know your thoughts, was this an ancient or a ski lift that was poorly taken care of let me know in the comments below.
