A group of Cabot High School students are glad to be back on the ground after they were stuck in a gondola for seven hours during a trip to Quebec.
The 13 students and five chaperones were on a field trip to Quebec City with their French class when the gondola tour of Montmorency Falls stopped in mid-air because of a motor power failure.
New England Cable News reports the Vermonters and other tourists had to be individually lowered from the trams by ropes about 200 feet to the ground.
Superintendent Nancy Thomas says a couple of the kids were nervous but for the most part they were fine and handled it really well.
The students are expected to return to school Wednesday.
