Ski lift crash injures eight

An out of control chairlift at a Georgian ski lift recently injured eight people after it malfunctioned, sending dozens of people careening backwards down the hill. 

Video posted online shows dozens of people jumping off the lift before reaching the bottom, as chairs pile up and people scream. 

Several people were caught in the pile up and injured. 

The Guardian reports that Davit Sergeenko, the Georgian Minister of Health, Labor and Social Affairs, said two of the injured tourists, including a pregnant woman from Sweden, were airlifted to hospital, but no one suffered serious injuries. 

The incident was reportedly caused by an "electricity outage," according to Georgian economy minister, Dimitry Kumsishvili.
