An operation to rescue people trapped overnight in a series of cable cars in the French Alps has resumed.
Forty-five tourists spent a cold Thursday night dangled above the glaciers of Mont Blanc at an elevation of about 3,800m (12,468ft).
They were among 110 individuals when the cable cars ground afternoon initially trapped.
It really is considered the cars stopped after cords became tangled.
By loosening the tension of cables carrying them technicians on Friday morning are trying to untangle the cable cars,.
Sixty-five people were evacuated by helicopter on Thursday but the rescue operation had to be suspended on Thursday night when night fell and visibility was hampered by clouds.
“We were compelled to suspend operations for security reasons,” said Georges Francois Leclerc, prefect of the Haute-Savoie department.
The stranded tourists are given energy bars, survival blankets and bottles of water.
Local officials said the operation would restart at 06:30 local time (04:30 GMT).
Mathieu Dechavanne, the head of the cable car company, said it appeared that cables had crossed around “for unexplained reasons” but probably as a result of strong gusts of wind.
Swiss, Italian and French teams are taking part in saving efforts and they have three helicopters at their disposal.
