Major chair malfunction in Georgia (country)

Holy CRAP! The video is rather disturbing to say the least. Exactly the same result as the rollback failure test performed at winter park around 1990 on an old double that was being replaced.





At 55 seconds in you'll get a view of the NON- lift evac that occurred for the rest of the lift...

The known result from prior failure testing of this exact scenario.
