Cable car plunges to ground, killing 14 in northern Italy
Several of the victims were Israelis. One child survived and was hospitalized in serious condition with broken bones.
A cable car plunged Sunday to the ground in the mountains of northern Italy, killing 14 tourists and seriously injuring one child.
Six of the dead were Israeli citizens, including a family of four who lived in Italy, the Israeli foreign ministry told The Associated Press.
The mayor of Stresa, where the accident occurred, said a cable broke, sending the car careening until it hit a pylon and fell to the ground.
Italy’s government said a commission would investigate the tragedy.
