“According to my experience with regard to the speed of the car during the re-entry phase, a single brake could have stopped the car…”. It is a statement that makes what happened last Sunday on the Mottarone cable car even more bitter when the breaking of the hauling cable and the voluntary blocking of both emergency brakes caused cabin number 3 to fall, killing 14 people. Words that an employee of the Mottarone Railways, the company that manages the plant, pronounced in front of the Carabinieri of Stresa who are trying to reconstruct the dynamics of the tragedy. The deposition is included in the provision by which the judge of Verbania released two of the three suspects, house arrest was decided for the head of the plant Gabriele Tadini. Of the five workers heard on May 25, two days after the tragedy, all said that the logs or forks, two for each cabin, “are placed at the disposal of the head of service who either does it personally or delegates it to one of the operators indistinctly “. The only head of the plant is Tadini. One of the red colored forks, just to signal an important element of the plant, was still anchored to the crashed cabin, the second was found not far away during an inspection on the site of the tragedy. One would have been enough, perhaps, not to count the dead.
