At an amusement park, it’s all fun and games, until you get trapped 60 meters above the ground – and that’s exactly what 138 people, including dozens of kids, went through when a Ferris wheel suddenly stopped at a theme park in Yangzhou, east China’s Jiangsu Province, on Sunday evening.
Firefighters had to manually rotate the wheel using ropes, freeing passengers as each capsule reached ground level. Other rescuers comforted those still trapped, especially children.
However, the operation was momentarily hampered as the dysfunctional ride suddenly started to speed up. Luckily, it was quickly brought under control.
No injuries were reported, and the cause of the incident is currently under investigation.
