New footage of the cable car accident that happened in May has emerged, showing how the horrific disaster occurred. The videos were released by news outlets TG3.

In the video that can be seen below, the cable car appeared all to dock at the station before the cable breaks. The car jerks and is sent reeling back to its original starting pylon and falling to the ground. 14 people were killed in the incident.

Two videos via different angles showed the mishap. The first one shows how the car jolted violently when the cables broke as it was about to reach the station. This sent the car reeling back at deadly speed.

The other shows an engineer was preparing for the gondola’s arrival before the cables broke.

There was only one survivor from the incident. He was five-year-old Eitan Biran in the tragedy that happened on May 23 near Lake Maggiore. His family which included Amit Biran, 30, and Tal Peleg-Biran, 26, 2-year-old brother Tom, and great-grandparents Barbara and Yitzhak Cohen, 71 and 81, all died.

Eitan survived thanks to his dad’s embrace. He is, however, suffering from post-traumatic amnesia at a hospital per reports.

Three men were arrested as a result of the tragic incident. They were identified as Luigi Nerini, 56, Gabriele Tadini, 63, and Enrico Perocchio, 51, all tied to the Ferrovie Mottarone company.

Other people who perished included Roberta Pistolano, a front-line worker. She was part of Italy’s team battling COVID-19. She was celebrating her 40th birthday along with her boyfriend, Angelo Gasparro, 45, at the time of the tragedy.
