Hanging On For Dear Life

This is not exactly what you planned when you organised a family skiing holiday as all you were thinking about was hitting the slopes and warming up with a nice hot chocolate after a long, exhausting day pelting down the Alpine hills at a rate of knots. Being stuck on a chair lift for hours must be one of the most terrifying encounters one would ever have to endure, as the weather is freezing and your hands will go numb with the cold, so you cannot even get a good grip on the rails. Rare though it is; people have been known to be trapped in ski lifts for an entire night until they were finally rescued in the morning by an attendant. There have been certain cases where people go to extreme lengths to get attention; such as the American gentleman who started burning dollar bills for warmth as he was desperate to escape the chilly conditions. He was spotted by a passer-by after setting fire to his final note; which was a real stroke of luck on his part! Some stories are absolutely astonishing and leave you baffled as to how foolish and gung-ho people can be. For example; a few years back; there was an instance when a guy in a state of inebriation decided that it would be an excellent idea to jump aboard a chair lift and spend the night there. His only saving grace was that he had consumed enough alcohol to actually prevent him from getting hypothermia; otherwise he could have met a rather sticky end.
