PRAGUE (AP) — A cable car crashed in the northern Czech Republic, killing one person Sunday, officials said.
One of the two cabins of the cable car crashed to the ground in the afternoon. The only person onboard, a staff member, was killed, said Martin Puta, the head of the regional government. Puta said he hoped the cause will be investigated soon.
Rescuers said none of the 15 people from the second cabin were injured.
It was the first such accident involving the Czech Republic’s oldest cable car, which dates to 1933.
