Default Gondola Crash emergency evacuations

The Gondolas crashed in the Riveria station and the are evacuating people with the bucket trucks. They’re approaching two hours. Communication has been lacking and people are opening the under seat emergency kits. You can follow on Twitter with #disneyskyliner.

Default Skyliner Accident at the Riviera Resort

Not much to go on other than a couple of social media posts, but it looks like there's been an incident. https://wdwnt.com/2019/10/breaking-a...esort-station/

I have been seeing this on Facebook. Some people have been posting they have been sitting in a sky liner for an hour .
Passengers were told to open the safety kits for water and pee cups.

Pretty sad:

@WaltDisneyWorld @DisneyParks WHAT IS YOUR ETA ON THE #disneyskyliner REPAIRS?! We have four kids in distress and it has been almost 2 HOURS STUCK in the air! We have motion sick kids who need the restrooms #NOTOK #NOTSAFE

Disney should be better than this.
