Snowboarder falls off chair lift, lands on rocks (Video)

Thankfully for this snowboarder in the below clip, he survived his fall but it doesn't make the video any less difficult to watch.

I'll let the YouTube description tell the rest of the story:
 I was skiing when my friend gets off balance and ends up hanging from the chair. He did not have the security bar down. He hung from about Pole 8 to 21, and at 21 he fell. This was on a lift that averages 37ft above the ground, But pole 21 was the 3rd highest strech at about 45ft high, 19 being the highest. He suffered from injuries including: concussion, skull fracture, collapsed lung, and a lacerated liver.
