A theme park ride in California has broken down leaving 18 people stranded more than 100ft in the air.
Several children are among those who have been stuck on the Sky Cabin at Knott’s Berry Farm for more than seven hours.
Bosses said their safety team made several attempts to get the cabin back down before calling firefighters.
Crews were then unable to reach the cabin with their ladders.
They have been forced to use a harness to winch each person trapped down individually.
A member of staff is among those stuck and has been in communication with those down below.
It is believed the ride’s main brake has become jammed.
In a statement, Knott’s Berry Farm said everyone on board is “safe” and there are no reports of injuries.
“As always, the safety of our guests and employees is our number one priority,” it added.
