MONTICELLO, Ind. (WLFI) – A mechanical problem at Indiana Beach caused four people to be stuck in a roller coaster about 70 feet in the air Monday.
Monticello firefighters say they got the call shortly before 7:30 p.m. on the Steel Hawg.
Crews say two adults, along with a 15-year-old girl and 10-year-old boy were upright, but on a curve when the coaster got stuck for an unknown reason.
Firefighters secured the car, then used a full body harness to move each person to a manlift and down to the ground.
The last person was on the ground a little after 9 p.m.
Everyone was OK and released.
Firefighters say the car was left on the track so that personnel could figure out what caused the malfunction.
