Girl dangles from lift


FORT QU’APPELLE, Sask.—A mishap on a chair lift at a Saskatchewan ski hill left a seven-year-old dangling from the restraining bar by her helmet.

Don Williams, of Mission Ridge Winter Park in Fort Qu’Appelle, said it happened Thursday afternoon when the little girl slipped between the restraining bar and the front edge of her seat.

He said she “didn’t load quite right” and ended up hanging by her helmet about six metres in the air.

Ladders wouldn’t reach her so Williams said staff had to catch her in a net.

Williams added the girl was taken to hospital and released a short time later.

He said crews at the park train for such situations.
