Chair lift evacuated Thursday at Crabbe Mountain

Approximately 50 people people were stranded in the air for more than two hours Thursday when the chairlift at Crabbe Mountain broke down in the late afternoon.

Files from the CBC reporting the incident happened just before 4pm yesterday.   

Officials with the facility say the team was having trouble getting a backup engine going, so they made the call to evacuate.
 
Emergency responders from North York Regional fire departments in Keswick Valley and Millville, as well as those from Nackawic's fire department, joined the rescue effort soon after.

 No one was injured.
 
Crabbe Mountain will be open again today. Until the chairlift is fixed, the T-bar and Pony Tow will be used to transport people up the hill.
