Hundreds were left stranded and dangling in mid-air after an accident shut down a cable car at the Val Gardena ski resort in Italy Thursday.

Rescuers had to use a helicopter to retrieve the nearly 200 skiers stuck in gondolas after high winds blew a 40-metre-high tree right onto the gondola’s power lines.

The Ciampinoi cable car shut down as a result, stranding hundreds in cable cars which carried 12 skiers each.

Amid concerns the toppled tree could cause further damage and wind gusts of up to 130 kilometres per hour, rescuers were lowered from the helicopter onto the gondolas.

They then used cables to lower skiers to the ground.
