    Dangling skier rescued with makeshift fencing net - GIF

    Skier dangling off chairlift is rescued with makeshift net made from fencing.




    I guess this is actually an impromptu life net, a bygone fire rescue tactic now favored by cartoon characters, but demonstrated here by Vancouver firemen in 1910.

    The dude didn’t look to get up? Does anyone know if he’s ok?
    It looked like he landed fine. Kudos to the ground personnel.

    Looks like he still hit the ground pretty firmly.
    Enough to be winded would stop you jumping to your feet immediately

    I'm with 12bolts: looked like a thud; no judo break of fall. Anything like that that you walk away from (eventually) was a good save. great idea to drop sky first.
