The Cavalese cable car disaster of 1976 is the deadliest cable car accident ever. On 9 March 1976, the steel supporting cable of an aerial tramway broke as a cable car was descending from Cermis near the Italian ski resort of Cavalese in the Dolomites, 40 km north-east of Trento.
The cabin fell some 200 metres (660 ft) down a mountainside, then skidded 300 feet (91 m) before coming to a halt in a grassy meadow. In the fall, the three-ton overhead carriage assembly fell on top of the car, crushing it. Forty-three people died, including 15 children between the ages of 7 and 15 and the 18-year-old cable car attendant. Initial reports stated 42 dead with one missing; however, the last body, that of Fabio Rustia, was found later. The only survivor was a 14-year-old Milanese girl, Alessandra Piovesana, who was on a school trip and was with two friends when the accident happened. Later she worked as a journalist for the science magazine Airone, before her death from illness in 2009.
The cable car had a capacity of 40 people or 7,000 pounds (3,200 kg). At the time of the accident it had 44 occupants – justified by the operator, as many of them were children. Most of the victims were West Germans from Hamburg. Among those aboard were 21 Germans, 11 Italians, 7 Austrians and one French woman.
The inquest found that two steel cables crossed and one severed the other. The automatic safety system which could have prevented the disaster was switched off. Four lift officials were jailed for their part in the disaster.
