You might be a little anxious about your first skiing trip because you might ski into a tree and break a leg. But you would never in your wildest dreams anticipate this nightmare.
On Friday, a skier at Beech Mountain ski resort in North Carolina ran over a hydrant and broke it. The hydrant was right under the ski lift. What’s the worst that could happen? The ski lift stopped and restarted as the spray affected skiers going in either direction, drenching them in water in single-digit temperature conditions. Some opted to jump off, at a height of about 25 feet. You can see a much longer video of the incident here.

We don’t know yet how the particular person in the Twitter video fared, but several people were injured by jumping off the ski lift to avoid the spray. Two were sent to a hospital by ambulance and are said to have non-life threatening injuries. Others sought medical help on their own. -via Fark
