(KGTV) - A group of people sprang into action to catch a young girl who slipped off a ski lift in Big Bear.
This past weekend, video shot by Instagram user explosive_comics_art showed a 5-year-old girl dangling from a chairlift during an outing at Bear Mountain Ski Resort.
Moments later, as the girl was coming dangerously close to falling off, being held by only her hoodie by a ski instructor, according to ABC Los Angeles affiliate KABC, as she dangled above the ground.

A group of people below rush off and bring back a tarp to create a safety net for her to drop down to. The girl fell to the tarp and was not seriously injured.
In a statement to KABC, Bear Mountain officials said there were investigating the incident and "will do everything we can to prevent something like this from happening again."
