Roller Coaster Riders Left Dangling Upside Down
A dozen riders on a roller coaster in Arkansas spent 30 minutes hanging upside down — 150 feet above the ground — after a power outage shut down the attraction.
It took about half and hour for the city Fire Department to get to the 'Springs & Crystal Falls' amusement park and rescue the riders using a ladder truck.
Spectators cheered when the riders were brought to the ground from the highest point of a loop on the X-Coaster, and one passenger threw up after reaching safety.
The 'X-Coaster' was one of several rides brought to a halt by the outage.
The park resumed normal operations when power returned, although they didn't reopen the X-Coaster.
Thirty-seven-year-old Jay Plummer was taken to hospital after complaining of neck pain and a headache.
"It was very scary", said his girlfriend, Connie McBride. "I love the amusement park, but I will never get on the X-Coaster again".
"You could tell who got off the X-Coaster because their faces were red", commented another person at the park.
