Sugarloaf, The incident occurred around 10:30 am EST Tuesday at Sugarloaf Mountain in Carrabassett Valley, Maine.Initial reports said eight people were injured, but the station later said in a statement that six people were injured. “All guests were treated injured and transported to area hospitals,” the station said in a statement. “At this point none of the injuries are considered life threatening.” The incident occurred when Middle weir lift derailed the eighth round of the lift, allowing five chairs falling about seven to nine meters below ground. About 220 people were on the elevator at the time of the derailment. Jay Marshall, who was on a bridge beside the broken, said the two elevators stopped and then restarted. Almost immediately, he saw a problem, and then heard screams.
“The lift has begun,” said Marshall. “I looked to my left and could see the cable that bounces up and down. I could see that the cable had come off the beach [wheels]. “Once the thing started to bounce back and my side, I stopped watching. I did not see it, honestly. It was terrifying.” A spokesman for the Emergency Management Agency Maine said he was sending a representative to the scene, but had no details.
