A ski lift in the country of Georgia malfunctioned and started going backwards at a high rate of speed, thus throwing people from their chairs.

This was a very scary scene as skiers were being thrown from their chairs and others jumping from their chairs.

Had those approaching in chairs not jumped, this could have been A LOT worse as they were avoiding a major crash ahead.

Amazingly no one was killed in this freak accident, but 11 people were injured here. The incident is now under investigation.
