Emergency crew have launched an operation to rescue people stuck on the lift on Tussey Mountain, in Boalsburg, Pennsylvania, US.

About five chairs slid backwards and slammed into each other, pinning skiers against each other.

"Tussey also caught flack online for a tweet posted early in the day, reporting "difficulties" with the chairlift and ending with what some saw as a flippant "#sorry".

"Our ski patrol, EMS and staff are working on evacuating anyone on the lift, off". We have contacted the manufacturer of the lift to diagnose what caused the malfunction, as well as the appropriate state agencies prior to re-opening.

HARRIS TOWNSHIP Multiple fire departments, half a dozen ambulances and police have responded to an incident at Tussey Mountain Saturday morning.

This is not the first chairlift accident in the Mid-Atlantic region.

Photos show some skiers wedged together on the lift after several chairs collided. But all chairs are still on the lift, towers still standing.

"Riding a chairlift or gondola while skiing, snowboarding, mountain biking, or even just sightseeing, is an exceptionally safe and secure mode of transportation", the National Ski Areas Association reports.
