A 38-meter-high swing ride in an amusement park in Quanzhou, Fujian Province broke down on Monday afternoon and trapped five people onboard. They were all 17 years old and came from a local middle school. The ride suddenly halted after running for eight minutes, leaving those on the ride stuck for nearly two hours until local firefighters arrived and rescued them.
According to the park manager, they kept doing regular annual inspections of the ride after buying it in 2014, but this time a wire wrapped around a gear, which might have been the reason for the incident. The park will suspend business and overhaul repairs on the machine, added the manager.
