I’ve never been skiing, but I know that the chairlift is one device that many people will never understand how to properly use — it seems you pretty much have to time it perfectly in order to grab a seat or risk falling right on your face. Well, I challenge you to grab a seat when the chairlift starts spinning around like some pissed off amusement park ride, because that’s exactly what happened at Gudauri ski resort in Georgia.

Take a look at the crazy video below:

Damn. That chairlift sure was having a bad day. Somehow no one was killed, but according to Metro, eight people, one a pregnant woman, suffered minor injuries while another two were seriously hurt.

It is still not known why in the hell that chairlift started going at double the speed, but an investigation is currently underway. What is known is that the majority of those people will probably never get near a chairlift again and will need some therapy to get over that chairlift that seemed to get a mind of its own.
