SeaWorld Skytower Ride Stalls, Stranding Dozens

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO, CA- Some frightening moments at SeaWorld Sunday when a power outage caused some of the amusement park's rides to shutdown in mid-air, trapping dozens of passengers on board.

One was eventually taken to the hospital.

Early Sunday evening, a power outage stopped many of the rides in SeaWorld in its tracks... Literally.

Most passengers say their rides were back up and running in no time... But the same could not be said for the Skytower.

San Diego fire crews were called and placed on standby as SeaWorld authorities figured out a way to get the 48 people on board the tower ride, down to safety.

The ride which stands 400 feet tall, halted hundreds of feet in the air.

It took a little more than three hours before SeaWorld officials were able to get the ride down.

All 48 passengers were let off, but two needed medical assistance, as ambulances arrived.

San Diego fire says a child was taken to a hospital for anxiety.

    Step through the doors of Hope's Land of Candy in Island Park, Long Island and you''ll be taking a trip back in time. There's no WIFI but they do have a Victrola piano. And then there's the candy.. lots and lots of it.

    It appears the subway bedbug problem we've been reporting is getting worse. Commuters already have to contend with sweltering platforms, scurrying rats and packed train cars, and now there's another transit woe: fear of bedbugs.
