Cable Car Accident (AFP)
A cable car crashed to the ground in a beautiful mountainous region in northern Italy on Sunday, killing at least nine people and hospitalizing two children. Officials gave information about this accident. The horrors of the accident have been shown in a photo taken by the Italian fire squad. It crashed among the pine trees near the summit of Motarone.
This is the place from where Lake Magiori (lake) is visible. Alpine Rescue Service spokesman Walter Milan said that the ski lift wire at this location is much higher than the ground. However, the reason behind the accident has not been known yet. He said that the cable line was repaired in 2016 and was recently opened after the closure due to the COVID-19 epidemic.
The condition of two children is critical
Milan said that Sunday was a beautiful day and many families came after months of lockdown to enjoy the sun and the weather and to celebrate the holidays. Italy opened only a few weeks ago, allowing local travel after COVID restrictions in winter. Milan said that there were a total of 11 people in the cable car at the time of the accident. He said that the condition of both the children is critical and they have been taken to Turin Hospital.
The most terrible incident since 1998
It appears to be Italy’s most appalling cable car accident since 1998, when a low-flying US military jet cut off a ski lift cable in the Dolomites, killing 20 people. As part of the rescue work, three helicopters were deployed on the mountain.
Italy’s Transport Minister Enrico Giovanni was monitoring the rescue operation. The accident raises questions over the quality of Italy’s transportation infrastructure. In 2018, the Morandi bridge in Genoa collapsed after years of negligence in which 43 people died.
