Heroes Catch Boy When He Falls Out Of Ski Lift

One young boy is thanking a group of strangers after they saved him from falling out of a ski lift chair. It was a terrifying sight when this woman saw someone dangling from a chair lift at the Grouse Mountain ski resort in North Vancouver, British Columbia.


A boy was riding up to the top of the mountain with his dad, when he slipped underneath the rail. His dad quickly grabbed onto him and held on as the boy hung from the 20-foot-high ski lift. Carolina Prada Akoglu spotted the incident from a distance and started to record. Just watch as a group of teenagers below take notice of the dangerous situation and decide to take action. They use a nearby piece of netting and stretch it out underneath the boy. One of the quick-thinking teens even grabs a piece of padding to place underneath the makeshift net. Then, they instruct the frightened child to release his skis.

Next, with everyone in position, they ask the father to let go of the boy so he can drop below. I think everyone was holding their breath as he free falls to his rescuers. Thankfully, the netting held and the boy was safely on the ground. I’m sure this was a heart-stopping moment for everyone involved but these kind heroes saved the day. God definitely put these teenagers in the right place at the right time. This incident could have turned out completely different if it wasn’t for these unlikely heroes. What an amazing moment all captured on camera.
