England cricketer Danni Wyatt revealed on Thursday the “terrifying” moment when Cape Town’s famed Table Mountain cable car lost power and left her hovering helplessly high above the ground. 


Wyatt and her teammates had joined tourists on the ride which sweeps over 1,000m (3,200ft) up to the plateau above the city. “There were a few technical issues that made me very nervous before we boarded the cable car and then it decided to drop a little bit and swung,” said the 31-year-old. 


“It was a very terrifying experience. I don’t think I’ll be going up that mountain again anytime soon. “I’m not going on that cable car ever again. Next time. I’ll take the stairs.”
