Man dangled from ski lift without pants
A man who just wanted a nice skiing vacation ended upside down without his pants after a ski-lift malfunction.
It appears that the chairlift's fold-down seat was somehow not in the lowered position, which caused the man to partially fall through the resulting gap. His right ski got jammed in the ascending chairlift, and that kept him upended since his boot never dislodged from its binding.
The poor guy hung like that for around seven minutes until he could be rescued.
