The woman was dangling from a chairlift at around 2:30 p.m. Saturday on the Emerald Express when fellow skiers, chairlift operators and patrol staff managed to rescue her.
“Marc Riddell, a spokesperson for the ski resort, said the 70-year-old woman was brushing snow off the chairlift and hadn’t sat down when it started to take off, causing her to get caught.He said the woman’s husband grabbed onto her, preventing her from falling while people quickly grabbed a net to save her.” – ctvnews.ca
