Something similar to this happened at a little manufactured ski run near where I'm from... except it didn't rip his arm off and he got pulled all the way in... needless to say, there is no more ski lift there.

Oh geez dude, on the magic carpet? Really? The high speed quad or gondola, thats respectable. But getting your arm stuck in the magic carpet lift? Thats just embarrassing.

This is why you never interact with moving machinery. If it needs to be fixed; stop the machine.

/ I've never really liked the connector mechanism thingy on ski lifts anyway; it always seemed too slender to me

I can't remember being this shocked by a news story on Fark in a long long time.

There's a ski/snowboard resort....in Illinois!??!

SlothB77: The high speed quad or gondola....


Wikipedia says the highest bit of land in the entire state of Illinois is the Charles Mound, a "gentle 1,235-foot (376 m) high hill"   High speed quad?  I don't think they need much more than a magic carpet and a tow line to get people to the peak of the Raging Buffalo.

It's not a good week to be around ski lifts.

Yeah, something like that happened to me at work.  Somehow my penis got stuck in the meat grinder.  They fired me for that.


Oh, the meat grinder?


They fired her, too.

This is why kids aren't allowed to work on machinery. 16-17 yro's are like drunks, they'll play with machines that can kill or maim till someone gets hurt.

But....was he wearing a helmet?  If so then he has nothing to worry about.   We all know wearing a helmet will protect you from everything bad which could ever happen.
