STRESA: Investigators said on Monday their initial probe into a cable car disaster in Italy that killed 14 people would look into how the lead cable snapped and why a safety brake mechanism failed to activate.
The gondola that takes visitors up a mountain from near the shore of Lake Maggiore plunged to the ground on Sunday, killing all aboard apart from a 5-year-old Israeli boy, who suffered multiple broken bones and is critical. The Israeli foreign ministry identified him as Eitan Biran. His parents, brother and two great-grandparents were among the dead. All the other victims were residents of Italy. The probe will look into suspected involuntary manslaughter and negligence.
