One of the stranded passengers spokes to SMDN and said that he was trapped in the cable car with his girlfriend for one hour and 15 minutes.

He said that the cable car had stopped all of a sudden at about 9.15pm, and he thought the line had been closed and his carriage had been forgotten.

An announcement was subsequently made to provide clarity on the situation and they were trapped inside the cable car while the issue was being fixed.

The cable car also moved forwards and backwards a few times, and the couple only returned to the station at about 10.30pm.

Another passenger who was trapped inside the cable car with his wife spoke to SMDN and said that it was extremely hot inside the cable car as there was no fan or air-conditioning.

The Singapore Police Force and SCDF were also seen at the scene.

The technical team then rectified the problem and the line then resumed its operations at about 9.47pm.

They added that the staff remained in contact with the passengers inside the cable cars via intercoms at the time.
