Austrian cable car being pulled up a 4km long tunnel to ski slopes caught on fire in the tunnel; cause unknown. Over 150 people were killed, perhaps as many as 170, many children and teenagers. The car, pulled on rails underground for most of the 3,200 yards up the Kitzsteinhorn mountain to a glacier region, stopped, blazing, about 600 feet inside a mountain tunnel. Rescuers could not reach the victims as the fire raged on. Those who tried to flee were felled by the thick smoke and flames and there were a mere 18 survivors.
Bill Sheeran quotes news "shortly after 9:00 AM local time."
