charilift 1990s save story

Here’s a feel-good throwback to set you up for the day ahead! It’s the amazing story of how an 18 year old, creative, and incredibly courageous chairlift worker called Sean managed to save a young girl called Angie when there was a disaster on the lift.

Angie was getting onto a chairlift in Utah with her mother but failed to sit down quickly enough, and as the lift proceeded and her mother tried to pull her onto the seat, she ended up dangling from the chair at considerable height before the lift was stopped.

Angie was left dangling, so Sean climbed up and jumped onto the chairlift wire and climbed over, risking his own life to get onto the chair and help Angie up.

“I knew what I was doing, I knew what my intentions are there and there was nothing else in my mind," said Sean.

Now, the story is great, but what is particularly confusing in the video below is how they managed to make the re-enactment – have they just risked another kid’s life because they didn’t catch it the first time on film?!

Either way, this story is great. Good work Sean. And even better – they kept skiing for the full day after!

PS. This is the most 90s video ever also – from the colours on show to the dramatic set up from the TV presenter at the start.
