In the last hours, a controversy has shaken Ecuador. The situation is linked to the fact that a young couple was recorded having sex in the “Aerovía” cable car in the city of Guayaquil, in a video that was later leaked on the Internet.
According to Karakol TV, the incident led to the dismissal of several cable car staff, who were also accused of spreading intimate material on social media.
The two had an intimate encounter in an elevated cabin. Apparently, they were unaware that he had security cameras.
The Police, for their part, are looking for the two young people whom they could accuse of inciting “acts against morality and good customs.”
In a statement, the company said it regretted the actions of the former employee, but stressed that the facilities were not used for sexual acts.
“The Guayaquil Air Suspension Union, operator of the Aerovía transportation system, categorically rejects conduct in our facilities that violates ethics and good customs, as well as the dissemination of mass-circulation audiovisual material,” they said.
“As head of system operations, all internal protocols were immediately activated and administrative measures were taken against those involved who were no longer part of the consortium as a result of the incident. It should be noted that this is an isolated incident and should not affect this commercial operation of this means of transport,” they added.
Likewise, the company stressed that for legal purposes, the cable car is considered a public space, which would entail severe sanctions for the two boys.
