Multiple injured after ski lift malfunctions in Tussey Mountain resort

The malfunction happened at about 10:20 a.m. and caused four chairs to slide backwards and crash into each other near the top of the slope.

"Tussey also caught flack online for a tweet posted early in the day, reporting "difficulties" with the chairlift and ending with what some saw as a flippant "#sorry".

Tussey Mountain opened for the season Saturday.
