Dozens of people who are trapped in cable cars suspended about 12,000 feet in the air above the Mont Blanc range in the French Alps will remain stuck overnight until rescue efforts resume, officials said Thursday.
An unknown technical problem caused the cable cars to stop moving while 110 people were inside a series of them, according to the Associated Press.
Authorities were able to airlift 65 people out of the cars before they needed to suspend rescue operations due to rough flight conditions.
The remaining 45 people who are stuck are being given blankets, food and water until the operation resumes in the morning, officials said.
