Due to a technical malfunction on the Mont-Blanc mountain between France and Italy, 110 people were stranded in the cable cars they were on in the evening.

As the technicians of the company operating the ropeways could not solve the problem for a long time, the gendarmerie launched an operation to rescue those stranded by helicopters.

Haute Savoie Governor Georges-François Leclerc said in a statement that the situation of the people trapped in the cable cars is good, but the rescue work may take a long time because a limited number of people can be evacuated at once by helicopters.

The trip in the 5 kilometer-long cable-line line of more than three thousand meters is completed in minutes and the 35 passenger can be transported on every vehicle.
