Just wow. People like Ammar make me restore faith in humanity. After 9-year-old seasoned skier Adel was stranded on the ski lift with rough winds and all alone, Ammar stopped the lift he was operating and clambered up on the ski lift, with his bare hands used the steel cable to get to the trolley with the stranded child. He was able to save him in time from a 12-meter drop.
Adel’s mom has set-up a change.org petition to help pressure Faraya’s ski slope administration to improve their safety standards and procedures. Here’s an excerpt of the story and the petition:
…One of Faraya Mzaar’s controllers (on his 3rd day on the job) working in the nearby button-lift (tire-fesses) took initiative. He stopped his station and ran across to the ski lifts.
This man, Ammar, reached the nearest pole to Adel’s lift and climbed-up. He then used his bare hands to dangle his body from the cable and made his way across 10 meters to reach Adel’s chair. He pulled Adel back up onto the chair and back to safety.This man saved our son and if it weren’t for him, we cannot imagine what could have happened if he hadn’t….
Thank you Ammar, from all of us!
