Hong Kong cable car stalls

Woah, what's this? I've read that Hong Kong's cable car service last Thursday stalled, leaving around 800 passengers stranded at different points from Tung Chung to Ngong Ping 360º. They were left suspended in midair for about 30 minutes in freezing temperatures nearing 0º Celsius.

That was scary especially since there was reportedly no announcement whatsoever, leaving passengers practically clueless as to what was wrong. Refunds were reportedly made and the whole service was suspended for 10 days since Thursday to get everything fixed. But I have faith in them and I know it'll once more provide tourists an enjoyable experience like I had the last time.
