Another 47 people were left without transport at the top of the mountain, the official said, some of whom had to descend on foot during the three- to two-hour trek around midnight.

He declared that he was “absolutely outraged” by the lack of a “clear protocol” from the operating company to rescue those trapped.

As he explained, the service was stopped at 4:30pm and the firemen were informed two hours later, they went to the scene “immediately” but as the company believed, the rescue operation started after 8:00pm. He can resume service.

After the accident, the company was ordered to shut down cable car operations to check “permissions are up to date and maintenance is carried out”.
