Manny switched on his GoPro camera as a helicopter rescue crew entered the car and pulled them out.

"Got stuck on gondola but the KHMR resort team rescued us and we got a sweet ride out of it!" he wrote on a YouTube video of the rescue.

The footage shows rescuers airlifting the visitors from the gondola before attaching them to a cord and carrying them to safety. Kody can be seen taking in the incredible views on the way down.
