7 Hospitalized in Wisconsin Ski-Lift Accident

Posted under 17715504-de5c-4360-84c1-3d77436f1d0a

Seven people were hospitalized following a ski lift accident at Wisconsin's Devil's Head ski resort when the lift's braking system failed.  The chairs began running backwards because of the brake failure, forcing skiers to jump off the lift to avoid hitting a brick wall.

It took two hours to get everyone off the lift.  One person suffered a broken ankle, and a total of11 people were hospitalized. Other injured skiers were treated at the scene.
