MONTICELLO, Ind – A mechanical problem at Indiana Beach caused four people to be stuck on a roller coaster about 70 feet in the air Monday evening.
Monticello firefighters report the fire department got the call shortly before 7:30 pm. It involved the Steel Hawg roller coaster.
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 man-lift and down to the ground. The last person was on the ground a little after 9 p.m. Everyone was okay and released.
Firefighters say the car was left on the track so that personnel could figure out what caused the malfunction.
