Since 5:20 PM, I heard. There are about 20 people there. I saw it on the news a few minutes ago. I really hope those people get down quickly...

The basket probably only travels at 15-20 MPH. They said it takes 5-9 to get to/from the tram, and 10 minutes to rescue people...That means at least another 3-4 hours...

This is something to see. Thankfuly the passengers seem to be calm and that should make the rescue efforts a little easier. The first batch are almost at Rooselvelt Island now.
