Climbers killed in Table Mountain fall
TWO people have died and a third has been injured in a climbing accident on Table Mountain, a major tourist destination in the South African city of Cape Town.
Local media reports said two bodies were recovered on Tuesday morning after emergency responders abseiled from a cable car to rescue the survivor late on Monday.
After the rescue operation, hundreds of tourists who had been stranded for hours on top of the mountain were ferried to the bottom in cable cars.
The three climbers were using ropes to abseil down the mountain when they fell – and two died when they hit the ground.
