Around 130 people had to be transported by helicopter from the Titlis mountain in central Switzerland on Tuesday afternoon after the Titlis Rotair cable car experienced technical problems.

Fortunately, no one was in the cable car cabin when the breakdown occurred as the cabin was located at the station.

The cable car link from Stand station to Titlis was out of action on Wednesday, but was operating normally on Thursday, June 7th, operators confirmed to The Local.
