Luckily, no one was injured.

An employee for the attraction confirmed to Global News that it appears this is the second act of vandalism after the cable was cut more than a year ago.

“It was pretty much trees falling and then metal sounds,” Zoe Desjardins said. “It was loud enough to wake me up.”

Desjardins also said she was camping in the area when the cable was cut last year.
