Rescue workers are continuing to try to free 10 children who are trapped in a cable car dangling over a ravine in Pakistan. The children, aged between 4 and 10, were on a school trip when the cable car malfunctioned and came to a halt. They have been trapped for over 24 hours, and rescuers are facing a number of challenges.
The cable car is located in a remote area, and access is difficult. The ravine is also very deep, and the children are trapped in a gondola that is hanging precariously. Rescuers have been using ropes and pulleys to try to reach the children, but the operation is slow and dangerous.
The children are said to be in good spirits, but they are understandably scared. The parents of the children are gathered at the scene of the accident, and they are anxiously awaiting news of their children’s rescue.
The rescue operation is being led by the Pakistan Army, and they have been joined by local police and firefighters. The army has deployed helicopters and drones to help with the rescue, and they are also using specialist mountaineering equipment.
The rescue operation is expected to take some time, but the rescuers are determined to bring the children to safety.
