German glider rescued after 11 hours from cable car 80 meters high | outside

A glider was released in the German state of Bavaria early this morning, 11 hours after it was trapped in cable cars at an altitude of 80 metres.

The 26-year-old got stuck in the steel cables at the highest point of the Hochfelln cable car in the town of Chiemgau, near the border with Austria. “A fall from that height would have been life threatening or even fatal,” a police spokesman said.

According to the Mountain Rescue Service, it was not possible to reach the glider with a rescue helicopter. The man had wrapped himself around the wires to prevent him from falling.

The cable car stopped due to the accident. About twenty people got stuck in the cable car because of this. The Mountain Rescue Service was able to free the people after about two hours.

The glider pilot was taken to hospital with minor injuries.
