France Mont Blanc

FILE РIn this file photo dated Wednesday, Oct. 12, 2011, an alpinist heads down a ridge on the Aiguille du Midi (3,842 meters; 12 605 feet), towards the Vallee Blanche on the Mont Blanc massif, in the Alps, near Chamonix, France. A series of cable cars stopped working at high altitude over the Mont Blanc massif in the Alps on Thursday, Sept. 8, 2016, prompting a major rescue operation and leaving 45 people trapped in midair overnight, France’s interior minister said. Four helicopters were deployed after 110 people became stuck when the cable cars stalled because of a “technical incident,” Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said. He said the helicopters rescued 65 people before the efforts were suspended for the night because of rough flight conditions. (AP Photo/David Azia, File)
