Austria: 40 evacuated from cable cars after tree falls
BERLIN (AP) — Authorities say about 40 people have been evacuated from cable cars in western Austria after a strong gust of wind blew a tree onto the cable. Some 35 mountain rescuers were deployed to bring people down from a cabin cableway in Tyrol province. An official said there was never any danger to the people on board. Those in the cars included children from a local school on a skiing course. As stormy weather advanced on Austria, eight people were evacuated from a chair lift elsewhere in Tyrol later Tuesday.
