Stressa – You were almost there!
Two videos now released by the Italian media show that 14 people were killed in the seconds before the gondola crash on Lake Magiore (Italy).
15 passengers almost reached the summit of Monte Motoron. Only a few meters separated from the safe ground at their feet.
Videos show moments before entering the red and white Gondola Mountain Station. It brakes, in front of the magnificent alpine panorama, with nothing to indicate what tragedy will happen a few seconds later.
Suddenly a jerk!
As the toy figures throw passengers to the ground, the gondola suspension cable rushes down the valley. The cabin leans to its side.
A witness walks away, startled, and he touches his head. He could not understand what had happened before his eyes.
In an accident on May 23, the tow rope was torn for an unexplained reason. In fact, the emergency brake on the suspension cable must have been used, but it was handled. As a result, the cabin ran at a speed of 120 km per hour from the valley, it jumped from the support cable on a support pole and fell 25 meters down.
Only a five-year-old child survived.
