OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma City firefighters have escorted eight people — including seven children — from a roller coaster that became stuck.
District Chief Benny Fulkerson says firefighters walked the stranded riders down a catwalk to safety Wednesday afternoon after the amusement park ride became stuck. There were no injuries.
He said the children range in age from 7 to 15.
Fulkerson says the Silver Bullet roller coaster at Frontier City "just didn't make it over a hill" and became stuck.
Fulkerson says power to the ride was shut off and the cars were chained to the rail before the stranded riders were escorted down one at a time.
