The tragedy of the Mottarone cable car, with the cable breaking a few meters from the finish, the fatal accident with the fall of the cabin in the woods and the many, too many, victims. The investigation of the case continues, with the seizure of the films on the spot and the prosecutor of Verbania speaking of “cable cut to the ground and the safety brake system that did not work peacefully because the cabin would have blocked”. Read also The cable severed and the safety brakes blocked “The cable was severed on the ground and the safety brake system peacefully did not work because the cabin would have blocked. Why this would have occurred is the subject of the investigation that will be carried out” he says Olimpia Bossi chief prosecutor of Verbania who deals with yesterday’s tragedy on the Mottarone. An investigation is being carried out for “multiple manslaughter” for the 14 victims and “negligent injuries for the injured child”, but the chief prosecutor Olimpia Bossi is also ready to proceed for “culpable disaster, a specific case envisaged as a negligent attack on transport safety” The prosecutor of Verbania plans to rely on the Polytechnic of Turin, in particular to experts in ropeways, to carry out the unrepeatable investigations that will be necessary to clarify the causes of the Mottarone tragedy. The area affected by the fall of the cable car is seized, the recovery of which, the chief prosecutor points out, “is a very complicated operation”, given that the cabin is located in an inaccessible area and far from a road that can be traveled by emergency vehicles . The chief prosecutor, together with the deputy Laura Carrara (on duty yesterday), will personally deal with the investigation – for now without suspects – open for manslaughter and culpable injury. of maintenance and restructuring relating to the Stresa-Mottarone cable car system, in the investigation of the Verbania prosecutor who investigates for multiple manslaughter and negligent injuries, all the videos of the surveillance system cameras of the structure ended up under seizure also ended in the days before the fall of the cable car. In the low definition images you can also see the last upward stroke interrupted a few meters from the summit when the towing cable broke and the cable car ‘swung’ downwards at an increasing speed since the safety braking system did not come into operation preventing the cabin from remaining anchored to the two cables The malfunctioning of the brakes caused the cabin to hit a pylon, so the cable car fell to the ground from about 20 meters before finishing its run several tens of meters further downstream against some spruce logs. As many as 9 bodies were thrown out of the impact with the subsoil, while another five people were trapped between the metal sheets. In addition to the videos on Sunday, the prosecutor has also decided to seize the videos of the previous days to understand if any anomaly has occurred that could explain the accident.
