Tristan Stead from Seattle was with his family when the heart stopping moment occurred.
“I was pretty scared,” he told INSDIE EDITION. “I thought I was gonna fall.”
He added: “the lift hit me in the butt and then my uncle grabbed me and tried to pull me back on the lift, but it didn't work, so I was kinda hanging there.”
People down below scrambled to find a tarp so he could fall and land on that instead of the ground.
During the incident, the boy was finding it hard to breathe. Stead said: “it was kind of hard to breathe because the chair was on my neck.”
