(NECN) – There’s some incredible video out of Santa Fe. A teen was caught on camera, dangling from a ski lift.

According to the 'Santa Fe New Mexican,' the teen was trying to throw a snowball at the chair in front of him when the momentum took him out of his chair.

He managed to hang on for a while but then dropped, falling 45 feet.
He is okay, however. He suffered a concussion, skull fracture and collapsed lung.
