130 stranded skiers rescued from resort
A total of 130 skiers have been rescued after being trapped on the slopes of the Italian resort of Cervinia after a lift failed in high winds on Saturday, authorities announced. Adriano Favre, the head of the rescue team in the Aosta Valley, announced the successful rescue just before midnight. The skiers had been stuck since 1430 GMT. “Luckily the wind wasn’t too cold... there are no cases of hypothermia, and everything is under control,” Favre said.
