Roller coaster gets stuck in Oklahoma City, 8 people rescued

Still frame from NBC News video

OKLAHOMA CITY – Oklahoma City firefighters escorted eight people – including seven children – from a roller coaster that became stuck.

District Chief Benny Fulkerson said there were no injuries and firefighters were walked the stranded riders down a catwalk to safety after the amusement park ride became stuck.

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.
