A dedicated rescue operation was promptly initiated to safely retrieve the trapped children. It’s noteworthy that a successful rescue operation occurred last year when three individuals were stranded in a cable car over the Chitral River.

This recent incident, near the Koragh spot, prompted a swift response from Rescue 1122 after a snapped rope left the chairlift stranded. Using rappelling equipment, a rescue official skillfully reached the chairlift, securing it with a new rope. The rescue team carefully pulled the cable car back to the shore, ensuring the safety of everyone involved.
