Coaster riders hung in Happy Valley

SEVERAL people were held in the air for nearly an hour and 60 meters above ground when their roller coaster suddenly stopped running in an amusement park in suburban Songjiang District.

The accident occurred at about 1pm this afternoon in the Happy Valley, according to witnesses, and people hung midair in panic for two hours before park staff brought them down to safety one by one.

The 65-meter-tall Diving Coaster, the most thrilling ride in the park and the tallest of its kind in the world, is currently being examined for the cause of the incident.

No injury has so far been reported.

A similar accident happened last March when the same coaster stopped running.
