TWITTER STUCK At least 20 people are trapped following the collapse of the lift in in Boalsburg US

But all chairs are still on the lift, towers still standing.

It took ski patrol and emergency officials about two hours to evacuate those who were stranded on the lift.

A reporter for WJAC-TV wrote with the video on Twitter, "Uploaded anonymously to the Snapchat map, this video appears to show moments after a ski lift accident that has injured at least three people at Tussey Mountain".

The five people who were injured are all mountain staff and none suffered life threatening injuries.

The chairlift at Tussey Mountain in Harris Township, Pennsylvania, became stuck Saturday morning after a malfunction. Management said they were not yet sure if the main slopes would be open on Sunday as a mechanic was still evaluating the ski lift system. May not be able to run it today.

December 16 was the first day the slopes were open for the season. "Stay tuned... #sorry", the tweet read.

"At the time the office was notified of a lift malfunction and when this original tweet was made, we were under the impression it was exclusively a lift issue and there were no injuries".

Representatives from the resort apologized for the mishap in a statement provided to TIME.

Tussey Mountain apologized for the inconvenience caused to all skiers and snowboarders and thanked everyone for their patience and understanding, according to Weyman.

Five people were injured at a Pennsylvania ski resort Saturday when a chair on the ski lift slid backward into the chair behind it, setting off a chain reaction that involved a total of five chairs, officials said.
