ADAMS COUNTY, Pa. (WPMT)  A day of fun on the slopes turns into a big scare for a nine-year-old boy at Liberty Mountain Resort.

The boy dangled from his ski lift for about 45 seconds before falling about 20 feet.

The fall was caught on a cell phone video by Adrian Delgado.

Fortunately, a spokesman for the resort says the boy only suffered a leg injury and is expected to be OK.

"I think they couldn't pull him, because every time they tried, they would lean forward and it would be rocking the lift, and either they were gonna lose him faster, or all three of them would fall," said Delgado.  "He fell from 20 feet and just hurt his leg - that has to be a miracle."

The accident is currently under investigation. A resort spokesperson says they still do not know what led to the boy's fall.
