A young boy riding a ski lift at the Hidden Valley Ski & Snowboard Area in Manitowoc County, Wisconsin, slid off the seat and was dangling 25 feet in the air. He was spotted gripping on to his father’s hand below the chair on Sunday afternoon and a crowd quickly gathered below to try to catch him. He was successfully dropped into the arms of volunteer rescuers. A happy ending indeed, but the photos here clearly illustrate why all chair lifts should be equipped with safety bars.
