Byeditorial

From the tragedy of Cermis, the most serious of the twentieth century where 42 people lost their lives, to date with the Mottarone disaster which caused at least 12 victims, the list of cable car accidents unfortunately counts tragic precedents in Italy. Read also DOLOMITES, THE CERMIS TRAGEDY. The disaster of the cableway of Cavalese (Trento) of 9 March 1976, or the Cermis disaster, is the most serious accident to a cableway recorded in the twentieth century. In one of the last races of the day, at 5:20 pm, the supporting rope of the plant gave way and the cabin fell on the side of the mountain after a flight of about 200 meters; then he continued the run on the ground for another 100 meters. Forty-two dead. CHAMPOLUC, ACCIDENT ON THE CLIMBING TOWARDS CREST. On February 13, 1983 in Champoluc in Val d’Aosta, three cabins of the cable car leading to the Crest crash, causing the death of eleven people. A 9-year-old boy is saved. DOLOMITES, CERMIS OF NEW PAIN THEATER. Over 20 years later, Cermis is again the scene of a tragedy: on February 3, 1998 a US Marine plane from the Aviano base during a flight cuts a cable from the Cermis cable car. A cabin collapses into space, killing 20 people. SESTRIERE. On 22 March 2008 an accident in the Pragelato al Sestriere cable car in the Piedmontese valleys, 14 injured. MONT BLANC. On 8 September 2016, the Mont Blanc panoramic cableway connecting the Aiguille du Midi to Punta Helbronner crashes due to a breakdown. Rescue was launched, saving the more than one hundred people involved. CERVINIA, CHRISTMAS EVE ACCIDENT. On 24 December 2016 due to bad weather, the ropes of the Plan Maison-Cime Bianchi Laghi cable car in Cervinia overlapped causing the system to stop. All 153 skiers saved after a maxi-rescue operation lasting over 7 hours. – July 3, 1972: the cabin of a cableway crashes in Betten-Bettmeralp, in the Swiss Alps: 13 dead. – June 1, 1990: in Tbilisi (Georgia) 15 deaths in two cabins of the cableway, which fall due to a broken cable. – June 5, 1993: in Bakhtela (Pakistan), the cabin of a cable car crashes due to the breaking of the steel cable: 13 deaths – July 1, 1999: a cabin of the Pic de Bure cableway, in France, crashes and causes the death of 20 people. – 11 November 2000: a fire breaks out on a funicular train that climbs through a tunnel from the tourist village of Kaprun to the Kitzsteinhorn glacier in Austria. In the accident 155 people were suffocated by smoke. It is the most serious accident by number of deaths in a funicular in the last 40 years. – 5 September 2005: a large concrete beam transported by a helicopter crashes into a cabin of the cable car on the Tyrolean glacier of the Oetztal, in Austria. 9 people died in the accident.
