This is very scary and yet they have to do this in their daily commute to school.

    They’re not trapped, the door is wide open. They just don’t want to get out on account of their altitude.

    I can’t stand being in those things when they function correctly, I can’t imagine being in one in this shape.

    This probably cements my resolve to never get in a cable car again though.

    The owner of the cable car company in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province was later arrested by police on multiple charges including negligence and endangering valuable lives.

    “Endangering valuable lives”? I’d love to get a breakdown between which lives are valuable and which aren’t.

      They are trapped now because it is derailed but before it derailed it was still terrifying because it is a Rusty metal bucket on a string.

    They should call doppelmayr and get some proper hardware installed… every single ski lift in Austria is better equipped…

    I’m surprised not to see a dribble of piss and shit coming out of that thing, I know I would be evacuating if I was stuck up there…

    Cable snaps.

    Weight for two cables is now on one cable.

    Rescue Plan A: one kid saved by helicopter before dark.

    Rescue Plan B: Send another weight in form of a man on that very cable.

    I would’ve died from a heart attack.

    That is terrifying. The cable car looks like it was falling apart even before the cable snapped.

    This image is horrible. Being stuck there and all you see while trying not to die, is a news broadcast drone recording you for the live stream, to display everyone your misery and possibly fall to death.

    Yeah, you wouldn’t be able to force me to ride on that. What is that? TucTuc cargo bed with cheap pulleys and someone’s front gate as doors?

    As sketchy is the car itself looks, how cool is it that we can literally fly a harness up to them by drone for the zipline to the ground? Yes, they used military helos, but that all could have been delivered by drone, then winched up to the helo. Interesting times.

    Mofo in the back just browsing on their phone. “Welp looks like we’ll be here a while, time to clean out those old emails!”
