Skiers at Gudauri ski resort in Georgia were forced to throw themselves off a broken ski lift as chairs crashed into each other at the bottom of a slope.
Skiers were thrown to the ground or had to jump to safety after a lift went out of control at a Georgia resort.
Holidaymakers were travelling downhill at the Gudauri ski resort when the lift started moving quickly backwards.
A video of the incident showed horrified onlookers shouting in panic as people were thrown to the ground.
At least eight people were injured, including nationals from Sweden and a Ukrainian, according to local media.
There were no deaths reported.
The Mountain Resort Development Company, from Georgia's Ministry of Economy, said it had contacted the ski-lift manufacturer, said Georgian media.
