Gondola Jumper at Whistler

Video explains it all.



The authorities arrested the woman at the top of the gondola, and they're still looking for the jumper...

While I don't condone such reckless behaviour, putting people's lives in jeopardy, blah, blah, blah,...
That was a pretty cool video!

I'm guessing they didn't sign a waiver before doing this stunt.

I just skipped to the part where he jumped, so I must have missed that.

Her sticking her foot out to hold the door open is not standard gondola riding protocol.

I mean, its a big deal since the resort has liability issues and all that i guess. but noone was hurt, i imagine theyll give up looking for the fella at the end... to bad they had video... if there was no video the girl would actually have a shot in court... alls she needed to say, is "I couldn't prevent him from doing the stunt i fear if i stopped him he would have pushed me out of the gondola"
