We will connect with reporters who are at the scene of the accident to hear more details.

Reporter Min Kyung-ho, how is the ski resort now?


Yes, it is normally crowded with night skiers, but as you can see, all the lights are off.

I arrived here a little after 5 PM, and around that time I could see the final rescue work in progress.

Since the accident occurred around 3 pm, passengers isolated on the lift had to be cold for two hours.

In particular, as it was the last weekend of vacation, there were many families, including children, who visited the ski resort, but fortunately there were no serious injuries.

As the rescue of over 100 isolated people was completed, the fire department and police began a full-scale investigation into the cause of the accident.

In particular, before the accident today, we are paying attention to the testimonies of users who said that the lift seemed to stop more often than usual, even though it was for advanced users.

The police plan to call those involved in the near future and ask how they usually manage and operate the equipment.

The ski resort said it would suspend the operation of the entire facility as well as the lift where the accident occurred and conduct safety inspections.

It means that we will not operate tomorrow and resume operations after safety is secured.
