Imagine for a moment what you might do if you get stuck in a cable car while on vacation.

Scream? Panic? Are you waiting for your fate, which will hopefully be saved with a helicopter or the cable car repaired?

Imagine being given a rope and asked to climb down while dangling in mid-air.

Because that was the reality today when some people got stuck in a cable car in India.

Some tourists were enjoying the view along the Parwanoo Timber Trail in the northern Shivalik mountain ranges when the car broke down.

A group of 11 people were stranded more than an hour before emergency services arrived to help.

Eventually, the fire brigade and police decided to evacuate the cable car using good old-fashioned rope.

Terrifying video footage shows one of the trapped tourists lowering himself.

Another cable car was later used to rescue the people who could not descend, such as children and the elderly.

The rescue is still ongoing.

Earlier this year, nearly two dozen people had to be rescued from a cable car at Sandia Peak near Albuquerque, New Mexico, after it became stuck on the cables in ice.

They were stuck over the New Year and there were no injuries – but those involved were said to have been “frustrated”.
