Officials have rescued 21 people who were trapped on the Sandia Peak Tramway in Albuquerque, New Mexico for more than 12 hours during icy conditions Friday night.
The Bernalillo County Fire Department received a call around 2 a.m. to assist in search and rescue efforts, after a tram got stuck while traveling down the tramline, Deputy Chief of Operations Brian Rose said in a news conference Saturday.
"We are happy to report that at this time all people needing rescue from the Tram cars have been rescued and are safely at base," the Bernalillo County Fire Department said on Twitter. "We still have rescue personnel on the mountain who are hiking out due to difficulty in making access with the helicopter. We will update when all clear."
