A ski lift malfunction at a ski resort in Gudurai, Georgia left at least 11 people injured. If you watch the video, the 11 seems like a remarkably low number of injuries. Some were fortunate enough to jump from the lift before it arrived at the station. Those who weren’t fortunate enough to escape beforehand were violent whipped around a corner and thrown into the air. Georgia’ health minister David Sergeenko said that the victims were Georgian, Swedish Ukranian, and Russian citizens.
