400 flown from James Bond mountain after Swiss cable car breaks down
JAY GORY, MANAGING EDITOR, odd news
Helicopters airlifted about 400 people off the Swiss mountain featured in the 1969 James Bond movie "On Her Majesty's Secret Service" on Thursday after a cable car broke down, stranding them briefly at about 10,000 feet above sea level. The tourists were atop the 2,970-meter (9,744 ft) Piz Gloria mountain when a technical defect disabled a gondola further down the mountain, the Schilthorn AG company, which operates the cable car system, said in a statement. The guests were then taken in a separate cable car to a nearby ridge, where four helicopters were enlisted to ferry them the rest of the way down the mountain to the ski station of Muerren. read more
