It was taken at a helicopter rescue. The underground metro alpin express in Saas Fee got stuck half way downhill on its last ride for the day. About 100 people were locked in the cable car in the middle of a mountain at about 3250 m above sea level. After 30 minutes they were evacuated from the cable car by the Saas Fee Bergbahnen staff, and were guided through a tunnel to a tiny icy slope just outside the mountain and several hundreds of meters above a glacier. Air Zermatt took them out with two helicopters. Everything looked pretty dramatic but was perfectly organized. People stayed calm and patient, and after just about 20 minutes 100 people had been flown out to a safe place. Flickr - Karsten Seiferlin.
