Amateur footage taken from a cable car on Table Mountain in Capetown appears to show a group of people scaling the sheer cliff face of the famous peak, a short time before a climbing accident there killed two people and injured a third.

The video zooms onto two people in brightly coloured jackets hanging off the cliff face, while a third perches above.

Local media reported that two bodies were recovered on Tuesday morning after emergency responders abseiled from a cable car to rescue the survivor late on Monday. The rescue stranded hundreds of tourists for hours on top of the mountain.
