Couple Killed But Baby Miraculously Survives After Cable Car Falls 100' Onto Rocks In Switzerland

By

A tragic accident in the Swiss Alps has left a couple dead after a cable car they were traveling on came off the cable on Saturday afternoon and fell over 30m. Miraculously the couples baby survived.

“The child is out of danger and we are contacting relatives of the dead abroad. We have no cause as yet as to why the cable car halted and then suddenly tipped over.  But it was not designed for passenger use, that much is certain.” – Florian Grossman, police spokesman

“A baby has miraculously survived a 100-foot fall in the Swiss Alps. The 1-year-old baby girl plummeted off a cable car that was climbing a mountain in the Alps, and astonishingly, she survived thanks to being put inside of a “rucksack” — like a backpack — and falling into a tree on the way down. But this isn’t an entirely happy ending. For when the cable car lurched, it not only sent the little girl careening over the side — but her parents too. And they were not so lucky.

The family was reportedly traveling 2,200 feet up Baerlaui Alp, Switzerland, in a cable car that was supposed to only be used for freight, not people. When they were 100 feet off the ground, the car reportedly lurched and tipped everyone over. The couple died instantly from head wounds, but rescuers heard whimpering from the rucksack in a tree and looked inside. The baby, severely injured, was alive.”
