THIS is the terrifying moment tourists were dangling 1,000 feet above the ground on a rope after two cable cars got stuck over a forest.
Because of a technical problem, 15 people became airborne over the Parwanoo Timber Trail in India’s northern Shivalik mountain ranges.
Four people were trapped in the uphill car and 11 people in the downhill car.
The group was stranded for more than an hour before emergency services arrived at the scene.
Terrifying footage shows two members of the group being evacuated from the cable car on a rope.
A person appears to be in a harness while clinging to the rope as it is lowered to the valley floor.
The person looks tiny compared to the vast green sea of trees in the forest behind them.
In another video captured from inside the cable car, a passenger can be heard saying she’s worried about using the rope, the Independent reported.
She said, “We cannot go down with the help of a rope. We are old.
“We will not be able to come down and the authorities have not been able to do anything.”
The Timber Trail sent a technical team to review the situation while local police surveyed the situation.
National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) teams were also dispatched to the scene.
Onkar Chand Sharma, chief secretary of the national disaster management agency of the Himachal Pradesh state government, told ANI news agency the group has now been rescued.
He said: “A total of 15 people were stranded in two cable cars. Four people on the ascent and 11 on the descent.”
It is believed that the passengers came to visit from the capital Delhi.
Her goosebumps experience came after a man allegedly fell to his death from a rescue helicopter following a horror cable car accident.
The unknown victim was flown from Trikut Hills in Deoghar district, India, where a cable car accident had claimed three lives and left 50 others airborne.
In a shocking clip, the man can be seen swinging on a rope as a helicopter team tries to pull him in.
