WATCH: Boy, 9, survives after falling 6 metres from ski lift

Footage of a nine-year-old boy falling from a ski lift at Liberty Mountain Resort in Pennsylvania has been captured on video. 

In the video, the boy is seen hanging for dear life on a chair lift as rescuers below try to find a way to help the child. 

But soon, the boy loses his grip on the chair and plummets about six metres into the snow. 

Miraculously, the boy escaped with just a  leg injury, according to rescuers

"He fell from 20 feet and just hurt his leg – it has to be a miracle," said Adrian Delgado, the man who shot the video.  

Liberty Mountain Resort are investigating the incident.
