Four teenage girls were rescued at a California amusement park Tuesday after a ride malfunctioned and left them stranded in the air.

The girls were riding a roller coaster at the Scandia Fun Center in North Highlands when the ride suddenly stopped, leaving them stuck about 65 feet above ground.

The Sacramento Metropolitan Fire District was called to assist after technicians failed to free the car electronically and manually.

The fire department said, “Metro Fire is a true All-Hazard & All-Risk agency. Our rescue crews have preplanned this facility, and other target hazards in our district, and we continually train for these types of incidents.”

According to the report, all the teens were uninjured and the park gave them free tickets to return on another day.


Metro Fire of Sacramento tweeted, “Crews are responding for a rescue at Scandia Fun Center in North Highlands. 1 Roller Coaster car is stuck with several occupants. Fortunately all occupants have been safely removed by an aerial lander truck. The roller coaster car was stuck at the top of the tracks approximately 65’ in the air. No injuries reported.”
