Eight People Rescued From Stalled Roller Coaster 100 Feet Up in Oklahoma City

iStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- Firefighters rescued eight people who got stuck on a roller coaster 100 feet above the ground in Oklahoma city.

The Oklahoma City Fire Department responded to the scene at the western-themed amusement park Frontier City this afternoon and rescued eight passengers. No injuries were reported, according to the Fire Department's official Twitter account.

In a statement, Frontier City said a train on the Silver Bullet ride stalled on the lift. The back half of the cars were able to be evacuated by park personnel, but due to the position of the train, firefighters were called in to escort the riders in the front cars to the ground.

"Guest safety is Frontier City’s top priority," the park said, adding that a "thorough investigation" into why the ride stalled will take place.
