Rescuers pull 80 people from stalled lift at Ohio ski resort
About 80 people had to be rescued from a ski lift at a northeast Ohio resort after the apparatus stalled Saturday afternoon. No injuries were immediately reported.
Winds in northeast Ohio and the Cleveland area were gusting up to 25 mph or more Saturday afternoon, though that's "fairly common" for the region, said Brian Mitchell, a meteorological technician for the National Weather Service.
