WHISTLER, B.C. – Dramatic new video shows a boy dangling from a ski lift on the Peak Express.

Thanks to some quick-thinking bystanders, that boy is safe.

Witnesses told CTV that the boy somehow slipped out of his seat on the lift on Monday, leaving him hanging several feet in the air.

Fortunately, the lift was still close to the station.

The operator saw what happened, shut down the lift, grabbed a tarp, and got some people to help.

After counting to three, the boy let go and landed safely without any injuries.
