It was a sad Sunday yesterday in Italy as no fewer than 14 people died and one child left with serious injuries after a horror accident in which a mountain-top cable car plunged 65ft to the ground in northern Italy crashed.



Preliminary finding says the cause of the accident might be due to a weakened cable.

The cable car was carrying passengers to the top of the Stresa-Mottarone line in the Piedmont region of the western Alps when it dropped just 1,000ft away from the station shortly after 12 pm.

Images from the site showed the crumpled car in a clearing of a thick patch of pine trees near the summit of the Mottarone peak overlooking Lake Maggiore, a popular tourist spot.

Rescuers work by the wreckage of a cable car after it collapsed near the summit of the Stresa-Mottarone line in the Piedmont region, northern Italy, May 23, 2021.
