Quad chairlift ramp collapsed in Špindlerův Mlýn

The ramp of a quad chairlift in the country’s biggest skiing centre in Špindlerův Mlýn in the Krkonoše Mountains collapsed on Thursday. No one was hurt in the incident, since the chairlift operators noticed cracking sounds coming from the building, where the ramp was located, and managed to evacuate people from the site before it collapsed. The operation of the chairlift has been suspended and the cause of the accident is being investigated.
