Mechanical breakdown traps passengers in Santo Domingo Cable Car

Santo Domingo.- The Office for the Reorganization of Transport (Opret) reported a mechanical breakdown in the Santo Domingo Cable Car between the T1 Gualey station and T3 Sábana Perdida.

Several people are currently trapped inside the cable car cabins due to the failure of a component called the bearing.

Opret has assured that it is maintaining communication with the passengers inside the cabins and is working diligently to restore service as quickly as possible.

Guess the bearing decided it was too hot to work.

Per the Listin Diario the stoppage was about 15-20 minutes.

Glad it was short time. If it was longer duration, the gondolas would become solar ovens slow cooking passengers having no safe quick exit.

Fortunately, there was no tragedy.
