Nearly 20 people were trapped at the top of a rollercoaster ride at a theme park on Australia's Gold Coast for almost two hours on Wednesday. The incident comes just a few months after a neighbouring theme park ride accident killed four people.
The incident took place at the Warner Bros Movie World park, owned by Australia's Village Roadshow Ltd. According to a spokeswoman for Queensland Fire and Emergency Services, people who were trapped on the Arkham Asylum Coaster ride were seated in chairs suspended from the ride.
Out of those people, four people were rescued using a ladder platform, while the rest of them were easily rescued. The authorities said there was no report of any injury.
In October 2016, a deadly accident Dreamworld theme park owned by Ardent Leisure Group killed four people on a river rapids ride. The accident was so scary that it was ranked among the world's deadliest theme park accidents.
