Teen Falls Off Ski Lift VIDEO Teen Falls Off Chair Lift Jacob Guiterrez falls 45 feet from ski lift

Published on Feb 22, 2013

SANTA FE, N.M. — A teenager who fell 45 feet from a New Mexico ski lift says he was falling straight
toward a big rock and was sure he would die. Seventeen-year-old Jacob Gutierrez, of Albuquerque, told
the Santa Fe New Mexican he was throwing a snowball at a friend in the chair in front of him when he
slipped off. He caught himself on the armrest, ditched his snowboard and tried to hang on. Gutierrez
says he could see the lift shack at the end before he fell but ran out of strength. Gutierrez injured his
liver and lungs, had a hairline skull fracture and a gash on his forehead. He spent three days in intensive
care. A YouTube video of the Feb. 2 fall at Ski Santa Fe has gone viral.

Just the 18 second original video:

Kids will be kids.....Glad he didn't kill himself.
However, he probably will wind up on the countdown list for this year's Darwin Awards.
